April Meetup

Let's read Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt.

"1987. There’s only one person who has ever truly understood fourteen-year-old June Elbus, and that’s her uncle, the renowned painter Finn Weiss. Shy at school and distant from her older sister, June can only be herself in Finn’s company; he is her godfather, confidant, and best friend. So when he dies, far too young, of a mysterious illness her mother can barely speak about, June’s world is turned upside down. But Finn’s death brings a surprise acquaintance into June’s life—someone who will help her to heal, and to question what she thinks she knows about Finn, her family, and even her own heart. At Finn’s funeral, June notices a strange man lingering just beyond the crowd. A few days later, she receives a package in the mail. Inside is a beautiful teapot she recognizes from Finn’s apartment, and a note from Toby, the stranger, asking for an opportunity to meet. As the two begin to spend time together, June realizes she’s not the only one who misses Finn, and if she can bring herself to trust this unexpected friend, he just might be the one she needs the most. An emotionally charged coming-of-age novel, Tell the Wolves I’m Home is a tender story of love lost and found, an unforgettable portrait of the way compassion can make us whole again."

    Hi! So we are downstairs! There is an entrance directly to the downstairs under a red awning, but I told the upstairs hostess to look out for lost book clubbers :) so either entrance is good.

    Hi all! We're confirmed for 7:30 tonight at the Cranford Hotel. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone. For those not familiar with the Hotel it has an upstairs and a downstairs (the entrance is the upstairs). I'm not sure where we'll get seated, but I'll post another comment here when I find out. Also, there's a parking garage across the street, and it's free that time of night. See you soon!
