The next Lorenzo Virtual Book Club meeting will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 21, at 7:30 p.m. (AST) and will feature bestselling author Genevieve Graham discussing her recent book, The Forgotten Home Child.

The Home for Unwanted Girls meets Orphan Train in this unforgettable novel about a young girl caught in a scheme to rid England’s streets of destitute children, and the lengths she will go to find her way home, based on the true story of the British Home Children.

Genevieve Graham is the bestselling author of Tides of Honour, Promises to Keep, Come from Away and At the Mountain’s Edge. She is passionate about breathing life back into Canadian history through tales of love and adventure.

The Lorenzo Virtual Book Club will be a moderated discussion with 12-15 registrants. The conversation will take place on Microsoft Teams and will later be featured in a Facebook Watch party. Important to note is that the registrants can be individuals, book clubs, or groups of friends who have bubbled. Also, participants can be from Saint John, other communities in New Brunswick, other parts of Canada and beyond.

The Lorenzo Reading Series acknowledges the support of The League of Canadian Poets, the New Brunswick Literary Promotion Program, UNB Saint John, UNB Saint John Bookstore, and its private reading sponsors.

SPOILER ALERT: The discussion assumes that every participant has read the book prior to the event. Participants should be prepared to hear plot twists and, potentially, the ending.
