Book Discussion

About this event

A gorgeous graphic memoir about loss, love, and confronting grief.

When Kristen Radtke was in college, the sudden death of a beloved uncle and, not long after his funeral, the sight of an abandoned mining town marked the beginning moments of a lifelong fascination with ruins and with people and places left behind. Over time, this fascination deepened until it triggered a journey around the world in search of ruined places.

A narrative that is at once narrative and factual, historical and personal, Radtke's stunning illustrations and piercing text never shy away from the big questions: Why are we here, and what will we leave behind?


Join us for engaging book discussions with selections that cover a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction. Participants can pick up a copy of the book one month before the discussion date at the Adult Reference Desk, or check out a copy through Libby/Overdrive.
