Tuesday Night Book Discussion - The Heart by Maylis de Kerangal

Event Type: Adult Services
Date: 2/19/2019
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
Description:
 Just before dawn on a Sunday morning, three teenage boys go surfing. Returning home, exhausted, the driver lets the car drift off the road into a tree. Two of the boys are wearing seat belts; one is sent through the windshield. He is declared brain-dead shortly after arriving at the hospital. His heart is still beating. The Heart takes place over the twenty-four hours surrounding a fatal accident and a resulting heart transplant as life is taken from a young man and given to a woman close to death. In gorgeous, ruminative prose it examines the deepest feelings of everyone involved--grieving parents, hardworking doctors and nurses--as they navigate decisions of life and death

Light Refreshments will be served.
