For our April selection, I have chosen a small, but important book. Jackie Copleton’s A Dictionary Of Mutual Understanding is a little bit about the terrible day, 77 years ago, in Nagasaki, and a lot about the aftermath in one particular family. it is hard to imagine that the people in Nagasaki that day, woke up just like any other day, and fed their families, went shopping, fell in love and had secrets. As the book begins, we see the result of that day on one man, a stranger, who has knocked on a door in Pennsylvania.
Please join us on April 11, at either 2pm or 6pm, to discuss this thoughtful and heartbreaking book.
