Young at Heart Book Club: The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo

Recapture the comfort, hope, and joy of your happiest childhood days spent reading. Join our brand-new book club for adults! We'll revisit old classics, find new favorites, and discover the unexpected, intellectual thrill of Children's Literature.

The Young at Heart Book Club will meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm in the Presentation Commons at Queset House. This program is for adult patrons (18+).

This month's selection is: The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo.

"Someone will come for you, but first you must open your heart. . . ." Once, in a house on Egypt Street, there lived a china rabbit named Edward Tulane. The rabbit was very pleased with himself, and for good reason: he was owned by a girl named Abilene, who treated him with the utmost care and adored him completely. And then, one day, he was lost. Kate DiCamillo takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the depths of the ocean to the net of a fisherman, from the top of a garbage heap to the fireside of a hoboes' camp, from the bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. And along the way, we are shown a true miracle — that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again."
