JUNE BOOK CLUB MEETS IN PERSON IN SARATOGA!
Join us for a directed conversation about our monthly book choice! Each month we meet to discuss the book of choice and the impact it had on us personally and how it might resonate with us as a group. We talk about it all, what the author may have meant, how we might relate to the characters and their struggles and what our take-aways might be! We start each meeting with a quick ice-breaker as we get to know our members.
One summer morning, twelve-year-old Edward Adler, his beloved older brother, his parents, and 183 other passengers board a flight in Newark headed for Los Angeles. Among them are a Wall Street wunderkind, a young woman coming to terms with an unexpected pregnancy, an injured veteran returning from Afghanistan, a business tycoon, and a free-spirited woman running away from her controlling husband. Halfway across the country, the plane crashes. Edward is the sole survivor.Edward’s story captures the attention of the nation, but he struggles to find a place in a world without his family. He continues to feel that a part of himself has been left in the sky, forever tied to the plane and all of his fellow passengers. But then he makes an unexpected discovery—one that will lead him to the answers of some of life’s most profound questions: When you’ve lost everything, how do you find the strength to put one foot in front of the other? How do you learn to feel safe again? How do you find meaning in your life?
