'The Age of Miracles' by Karen Thompson Walker

The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson WalkerJuly's Book Club selection is New York Times Bestseller and debut novel The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker. When the Earth's rotation begins to slow, a gradual apocalypse of longer days and failing gravity flip the comfortable suburban life of 10-year-old Julia upside down in this startling and poetic page-turner that you will never forget.

“It’s never the disasters you see coming that finally come to pass—it’s the ones you don’t expect at all,” says Julia in this superbly haunting and close-to-home work about hope and survival when the unexpected happens.

Join us on July 24 at 6:30 p.m. as we discuss Karen Thompson Walker's debut novel that Kirkus Reviews calls "riveting, heartbreaking, and profoundly moving."
