June Adult Book Group
Wednesday, June 26th 4:30 p.m.

The Friend

In June, the Book Group will be reading The Friend by Sigrid Nunez. The Friend is a moving story of love, friendship, grief, healing, and the magical bond between a woman and her dog. When a woman unexpectedly loses her lifelong best friend and mentor, she finds herself burdened with the unwanted dog he has left behind. Her own battle against grief is intensified by the mute suffering of the dog, a huge Great Dane traumatized by the inexplicable disappearance of its master. The Friend is both a meditation on loss and a celebration of human-canine devotion.
