On Thursday March 13 at noon, we will be discussing the Everyone's Reading 2014 selection:
Before you know kindness: a novel by Chris Bohjalian — On a balmy July night in New Hampshire a shot rings out, and a man falls to the ground, terribly wounded. The hurt man is Spencer McCullough an animal rights advocate. The shot that hit him was fired–accidentally?–by his adolescent daughter Charlotte at what she thought was a deer in the distance. Bohjalian uses his trademark emotional heft to create a literate page-turner is suspenseful, wryly funny, and humane.
