Join us on August 2 at 7:30 p.m. as we discuss Alyson Richman’s (author of The Lost Wife) The Garden of Letters. Loss and hope pervade this graceful narrative, which is set in Italy during WWII. In 1942, when music prodigy and Resistance member Elodie flees to Portofino, she is taken in by a doctor with a tragic past. Together they come to terms with loss and the terrible cost of war.
