Event Description

The Intercultural Book Circle will be meeting on Tuesday, May 01, at 12:00 p.m. in the James E. Marks Intercultural Center (3225 Arch Street) for a discussion of “Everything I Never Told You” by Celeste Ng. Lunch will be served and, as always, the first 30 people to RSVP to jkrohn@drexel.edu can claim a free copy of the book.

A synopsis of “Everything I Never Told You” is below:
“Lydia is dead. But they don’t know this yet.” So begins this exquisite novel about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee, and her parents are determined that she will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue. But when Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed, tumbling them into chaos. A profoundly moving story of family, secrets, and longing, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.
