Novel-Tea
A Tale for the Time Being

Add to your calendar
Date: April 24, 2:00 pm
Continues Until:
Location: Old Rock Library
Details: A Tale for the Time Being
by Ruth Ozeki
     
       Two lives intersect when Ruth discovers a Hello Kitty lunchbox washed up on her remote Pacific Northwest island. Inside she finds the diary of a sixteen year old Japanese girl, named Nao. As Ruth reads her diary, Nao’s life is dramatically exposed to her and the reader.
     A Tale for the Time Being is a tantalizing tale that exposes the inner most thoughts of its characters and questions our beliefs in what we believe to be true.
     On Thursday April 24th at 2 pm the library will hold a discussion of the book. Stop by for a cup of tea, a sweet treat and we will talk about the story, cultures, beliefs, suicide, bullying and more.
 
Old Rock has 11 copies of the book on display.
Drop by and check one out!
