First Thursday Fiction Book Group: Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt

Thursday, 6 November 2014 - 10:00am
Join us as we discuss TELL THE WOLVES I'M HOME by Carol Rifka Brunt.

1987. There’s only one person who has ever truly understood fourteen-year-old June Elbus, and that’s her uncle, the renowned painter Finn Weiss. Shy at school and distant from her older sister, June can only be herself in Finn’s company; he is her godfather, confidant, and best friend. So when he dies, far too young, of a mysterious illness her mother can barely speak about, June’s world is turned upside down.
