      I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I have to confess that it is very difficult to get me to cry over a book, but this one sparked a few tears...

    If y'all prefer, we can bump this one back and discuss last month's book (Good Omens) that we never got to talk about...

      How about if we discuss both books on the same night?

    "Still Alice" is a beautiful book, selected by Susan, who will lead our discussion. It is the story of Alice, a brilliant professor of cognitive psychology at Harvard and a world-renowned expert in linguistics who discovers she has early onset Alzheimer's disease. This book is beautiful and terrifying - ringing true in every word. To quote a reviewer, "with a master storyteller's easy eloquence, Genova shines a searing spotlight on Alice's surreal wonderland. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to read this book. It will inform you. it will scare you. It will change you."
