Hello Members and book club enthusiasts!
Thank you for those who participated in the vote this month. The winner is "None of This is True" by Lisa Jewell.
In this compelling novel, Jewell weaves a masterful narrative that challenges our perceptions of truth, memory, and the stories we tell ourselves. As we delve into the lives of her intricately crafted characters, we find ourselves questioning the reliability of their perspectives and the authenticity of the tales they spin.

The story unfolds in a small, close-knit community, where secrets lie just beneath the surface, waiting to be unearthed. Jewell skillfully peels back the layers of her characters‘ lives, revealing hidden truths and unexpected connections that will leave you guessing until the very end.

"None of This is True" is more than just a mystery; it‘s a poignant exploration of the human condition, touching on themes of love, loss, and the enduring power of storytelling. As we navigate the twists and turns of the plot, let‘s ponder the ways in which our own perceptions and memories shape the narratives of our lives.

Prepare to be captivated by Lisa Jewell‘s prose, as she invites us to question what we think we know and invites us to unravel the threads of reality. So, grab a copy, find a cozy reading nook, and get ready for a thought-provoking discussion that will linger in your mind long after you‘ve turned the final page. Let the exploration of "None of This is True" begin!

Event is offered in person and remote.
