Book Discussion Series: This Book is on Fire! reads “Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

Our Fall Book Discussion Series looks at the devastating effect fire can have on our communities, psyches, and environment. From the evidence of climate change increasing the frequency of forest fires to stories of love and arson in Accomack County, Virginia, this series explores the captivating power of flames. Everyone in Shaker Heights was talking about it that summer: how Isabelle, the last of the Richardson children, had finally gone around the bend and burned the house down. Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster. Discussion led by Maura MacNeil.
