The Carpe Librum Book Discussion Group will discuss Gabriel Tallent's astonishing debut novel, My Absolute Darling.
Set in the woods along the Northern California coast, Tallent's story follows the life of fourteen-year-old Turtle Alveston whose life has been shaped by her renegade survivalist father. Turtle's heartwrenching life is a blend of lonely days at middle school and nights with her father who often lapses into unpredictable violence. When Turtle meets Jacob during her first year in high school, she realizes the life she has led is unsafe and unsustainable. She imagines escaping the thrall of her father by using the very survivalist skills he taught her.
Carpe Librum will meet via Zoom on Thursday, October 29, at 5:30 p.m.
