Monday Evening Book Group Reads The Book of Lost Friends by Lisa Wingate

April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us on Zoom to discuss best-selling author, Lisa Wingate’s latest novel.  All adults are welcome to participate in our book discussions.  Please register by emailing Beth Van Ness at bvanness@libraryconnection.info or bvanness@townofcantonct.org so you can receive the Zoom link on the day of the meeting.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours comes a new historical novel: the dramatic story of three young women searching for family amid the destruction of the post–Civil War South, and of a modern-day teacher who learns of their story and its vital connection to her students’ lives.

Bestselling author Lisa Wingate brings to life startling stories from actual “Lost Friends” advertisements that appeared in Southern newspapers after the Civil War, as newly freed slaves desperately searched for loved ones who had been sold away.
