Thursday Book Group discusses The Mothers by Brit Bennett

Meeting Room B
05/23/2019 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Sequoya's Thursday Book Group hosts a discussion of The Mothers by Brit Bennett. It is the last season of high school life for Nadia Turner, a rebellious, grief-stricken, seventeen-year-old beauty. Mourning her own mother's recent suicide, she takes up with the local pastor's son. Luke Sheppard is twenty-one, a former football star whose injury has reduced him to waiting tables at a diner. They are young; it's not serious. But the pregnancy that results from this teen romance—and the subsequent cover-up—will have an impact that goes far beyond their youth. Soon, Nadia and Luke are full-fledged adults and still living in debt to the choices they made that one seaside summer, caught in a love triangle they must carefully maneuver, and dogged by the constant, nagging question: What if they had chosen differently?

New members always welcome. Copies of the current book are available at the Ask Here Desk while supplies last.
