Book Group will meet next week on Thursday, June 5, at 7:30 a.m., and Friday, June 6, at noon, to discuss Tell the Wolves I’m Home: A Novel, by Carol Rifka Brunt.
Brunt’s debut novel, set during the late-’80s AIDS epidemic, has received much praise, described as “crazy compelling.” The New York Daily News blog Page Views shares an interview with Brunt, asking about her inspiration and research for the novel as well as what her perceptions of AIDS were like at the time the story takes place. Pan Macmillan’s Tell the Wolves I’m Home extras include images that served as inspiration for the book as well as a playlist created by the author, which serves to evoke the moods of the novel (rather than being a collection of music mentioned in the book).
Boston Children’s Hospital staff are encouraged to join us in the AV Room in the Library on Thursday, June 5, at 7:30 a.m., or Friday, June 6, at noon, to participate in discussion about this coming-of-age tale. If you would like to be added to our Book Group email distribution list, please contact Alison Clapp or Jessica LaBrie.
