The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

For March, the group will be reading The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult.  I've read several of her other books and greatly enjoyed them.  Picoult is skilled at writing on very different subjects with vivid characters.  From the reviews on Amazon, this book will be no exception!!  We'll meet at Bhojanic, an Indian restaurant and a group favorite. 

Look below for more on the book (from Amazon):

Sage Singer is a baker. She works through the night, preparing the day’s breads and pastries, trying to escape a reality of loneliness, bad memories, and the shadow of her mother’s death. When Josef Weber, an elderly man in Sage’s grief support group, begins stopping by the bakery, they strike up an unlikely friendship. Despite their differences, they see in each other the hidden scars that others can’t.

Everything changes on the day that Josef confesses a long-buried and shame­ful secret and asks Sage for an extraordinary favor. If she says yes, she faces not only moral repercussions, but potentially legal ones as well. With the integrity of the closest friend she’s ever had clouded, Sage begins to question the assumptions and expectations she’s made about her life and her family. In this searingly honest novel, Jodi Picoult gracefully explores the lengths to which we will go in order to keep the past from dictating the future.

    I'm so sorry that I won't be able to meet you all today! I'm bummed but I am just swamped with work and can't make it out. Enjoy dinner and please don't wait for me! I'll meet you at the next one.

    Thanks Maggie. I'm sorry but I will be out of town before hand and won't have time to finish a book before the meeting. Will try to catch the next one!

    I've never been to a book club. Do we start the book at this first meeting or should I read it in advance of this meeting?

      This is a "read the book before the meeting" style group, but no one gets grumpy if you don't finish! :)
