About this event

Each month, join James McCluskey-Garcia from Reading Companions Australia over lunch for a storytime session just for adults!

January's read is a family story, but also a thoughtful reflection on the art of forgiveness and letting go of bitterness and hatred. Simon Kennedy's mom Yvonne was one of 10 Australians to die during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the only one to die outside of New York, in the attack on the Pentagon. In this book Simon remembers his mom and reveals unheard of details about the trauma family members endured in the aftermath of a global terrorist attack.

James will read an excerpt from the book and discuss plot, character, themes, history of the author and book before online Q&A/discussion from our listeners.
