Next Meeting: 13th June: John Connolly, The Book of Lost Things

The Book of Lost Things is a poignant story about loss and acceptance. It follows the events affecting a young boy named David, during wartime. When David’s mother falls ill and eventually dies, he must attempt to come to terms with her death before the pain of loss clouds his outlook on life. David must decide if he is willing to live with loss or create excuses and foster hatred for others in an effort to cope with the pain of loss.
