Book discussion: Truly Madly Guilty

cover of Truly Madly Guilty

Our next book for discussion will be the 2016 novel Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty. Join us for a pair of conversations on Monday, May 1:

• at NOON where you're invited to bring along a sack lunch for a daytime conversation,
• and again at 7 pm for those who prefer an after-work or post-dinner evening conversation.

HBO is airing Big Little Lies as a series now — take this opportunity to discuss Moriarty’s latest book!

In Truly Madly Guilty, Moriarty takes on the foundations of our lives: marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship. 

She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we don't say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that do the greatest harm.

We brought in books for IMMEDIATE CHECKOUT - stop in to check one out and take it home today!
