In the Book Club we will meet each month to discuss a chosen book. So if you enjoy reading and talking about books then this is the club for you! The book which you need to read for the next session is The Lost Daughter by Elena Ferrante, which was published in 2006.
From the author of The Days of Abandonment, The Lost Daughter is Elena Ferrante’s most compelling and perceptive meditation on womanhood and motherhood yet. Leda, a middle-aged divorce, is alone for the first time in years when her daughters leave home to live with their father. Her initial, unexpected sense of liberty turns to ferocious introspection following a seemingly trivial occurrence. Ferrante’s language is as finely tuned and intense as ever, and she treats her theme with a fierce, candid tenacity.
Michael Smith is the coordinator of the book club.
