DPL Book Club: The Year of Fog

September 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

| $6

September’s selection is The Year of Fog, by Michelle Richmond.

Life changes in an instant. On a foggy beach. In the seconds when Abby Mason—photographer, fiancée soon-to-be-stepmother—looks into her camera and commits her greatest error. Heartbreaking, uplifting, and beautifully told, here is the riveting tale of a family torn apart, of the search for the truth behind a child’s disappearance, and of one woman’s unwavering faith in the redemptive power of love—all made startlingly fresh through Michelle Richmond’s incandescent sensitivity and extraordinary insight.

Six-year-old Emma vanished into the thick San Francisco fog. Or into the heaving Pacific. Or somewhere just beyond: to a parking lot, a stranger’s van, or a road with traffic flashing by. Devastated by guilt, haunted by her fears about becoming a stepmother, Abby refuses to believe that Emma is dead. And so she searches for clues about what happened that morning—and cannot stop the flood of memories reaching from her own childhood to illuminate that irreversible moment on the beach.

Copies of the book are available for pickup at Dormont Public Library or in the Libby app.

The book club will be held at Arsenal Tap House on West Liberty Ave. There is a $6 beverage fee, payable to the server. Must be 21 and over to attend.
