Ready to spark interesting discussion in your book club?
Now Everyone Will Know addresses such issues as the destructive possibilities of secrets in relationships and families, about rebounding from unspeakable tragedy, and the redemptive power of owning and speaking the truth. It’s also about many other things, from the opening of one’s eyes to today’s radically shifting landscape of sexual and gender identification, to the challenge of communicating with kids about the truth—no matter how complicated—of people lost to them in their lives. On these issues and more, the book is designed to encourage discussion in your book club, with family members, with a friend, and with yourself.
