November Book: “A Loss For Words” with special guest author Lou Ann Walker
On Tuesday, October 25th the HLAA-TC Book Club met on Zoom to discuss the October book selection: the novel “The Quality Silence” (2015) By Rosamund Lupton. (Author Rosamund Lupton was unable to join us.) The group enjoyed a varied and interesting discussion on themes related to the book, including deafness, isolation, the environment and technology. We also talked about the books we will be reading for the next few months. If you would like to participate in one of upcoming book clubs and help us choose our book selections.
