The Book Club will meet on February 16th from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
This casual book discussion is open to all. Stop by Riverton Library any time before the event to check out your copy of the book. This month’s selection is Our Missing Hearts by Celeste Ng.
“In a dystopian near future, art battles back against fear. Ng’s first two novels—her arresting debut, Everything I Never Told You (2014), and devastating follow-up, Little Fires Everywhere (2017)—provided an insightful, empathetic perspective on America as it is. Her equally sensitive, nuanced, and vividly drawn latest effort, set in a dystopian near future in which Asian Americans are regarded with scorn and mistrust by the government and their neighbors, offers a frightening portrait of what it might become…Taut and terrifying, Ng’s cautionary tale transports us into an American tomorrow that is all too easy to imagine—and persuasively posits that the antidotes to fear and suspicion are empathy and love.”
