Book Club
Thursday, May 9 at 7:30pm

Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingateis ois a New York Times Bestseller.  The emotionally compelling story about the Foss siblings, separated from their parents and adopted by wealthy families, is based on a dark chapter in our country’s history and spawned book discussions worldwide.  Lisa Wingate’s riveting, wrenching, and ultimately uplifting tale reminds us how, even though the paths we take can lead to many places, the heart never forgets where we belong.
