Book Club: "Before We Were Yours" by Lisa Wingate

Book Club: "Before We Were Yours" by Lisa Wingate

Adults Take part in a lively discussion of Wingate's (eventually) uplifting novel!

Wingate's novel is based on one of America's most notorious real-life scandals, in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country. Wingate's riveting, wrenching, and ultimately uplifting tale reminds us how, even though the paths we take can lead to many places, the heart never forgets where we belong.

No registration required and new people are always welcome to join the discussion! Contact us for more information.
