JANUARY'S BOOK CLUB SELECTION!
THE REMINDERS by Val Emmich
This month we're joining Inkwood's Teen Book Club for a lively discussion...plus they have snacks.
Inkwood's Adult Book Club is open to anyone with a desire to talk books, open their minds, drink a little wine, share stories, laugh and have fun. We generally don't read bestsellers, we try to read only books out in paperback and we try not to judge. You can be a regular, you can come only when the book interests you, you can flit in and out like a social butterfly. There are no rules of participation except to PLEASE buy the book from Inkwood to participate because we like to pay the light bill so we can see what kind of wine we're drinking. Come out!
ABOUT THE BOOK: After the sudden death of his partner, heartbroken TV star Gavin Winters sets fire to every possession that reminds him of their relationship, while a neighbor secretly captures it all on film. Gavin decides to escape this embarrassing publicity and his own anguish by living with friends and their daughter, Joan. She is a rare child who recalls each detail of her life with photographic memory, and hates to be forgotten. Joan resolves to be remembered forever by writing the perfect song and convinces Gavin to help. They form an unlikely partnership; Joan remembers absolutely everything, and Gavin tries to forget it all.
