Book Discussion: Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult

Cover Art for Leaving Time by Jodi PicoultJoin us on Monday, August 21 at 6:30 pm for a discussion of Leaving Time: A Novel by Jodi Picoult. Available in Regular Print, Large Print, Audiobook on CD, eBook, and eAudio. 

Alice Metcalf was a devoted mother, loving wife, and an accomplished scientist who studied grief among elephants. Yet it has been a decade since she disappeared under mysterious circumstances, leaving behind her small daughter, husband, and the animals to which she devoted her life. All signs point to abandonment . . . or worse. Still Jenna--now thirteen years old and truly orphaned by a father maddened by grief--steadfastly refuses to believe in her mother's desertion. Deeply moving and suspenseful, Leaving Time is a radiant exploration of the enduring love between mothers and daughters. Free. Ages 18+. No registration required. Call 281-471-4022 to reserve a copy.
