Book Club Discussion with Author on Skype: Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave

Join us for a book club discussion at the store for Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave.  This is one of our staff favorites of the summer and is a brilliantly executed historical novel. 

Author Chris Cleave will join the book club over Skype to answer questions and join the discussion!

 
 

If you are looking for a great read look no further than Chris Cleave's "Everyone Brave is Forgiven".  This novel follows three friends during the early days of World War II in London.  Tom, Mary & Alistair form a complicated triangle of friendship, love and shared loss that show both the horrors of war and the dark humor that can get people through the worst of times.  Cleave's handling of the London Blitz is riveting and harrowing, and his depiction of the Siege of Malta is some of the best writing of World War II fiction in recent decades.
