Ghosts of the Missing Book Club Discussion (Online)

November 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for the November meetup of our General Fiction Book Club. This month we’re reading Ghosts of the Missing by Kathleen Donohoe. We will meet via Zoom.
“In the vein of The Lovely Bones and The Little Friend, Ghosts of the Missing follows the mysterious disappearance of a twelve-year-old girl during a town parade and the reverberations of this tragedy throughout the town.
On Saturday, October 28, 1995, a girl vanished. She was not a child particularly prized in town…When questioned by reporters, those who’d known Rowan described her as ‘quiet’ and ‘loner’ and ‘shy’ and even ‘awkward.’ Words for pity.
Culleton, New York has a long history—of writers, of artists, and of unsolved mysteries. It’s where Adair grew up before she moved to Brooklyn to try to make it as an artist. But after years away from her hometown and little to show for it, Adair decides to return. She moves back into Moye House, the old mansion, and current writer’s retreat, imbued with her family’s legacy.
Ciaran is a writer staying at Moye House in the hopes of finally solving the mystery of what happened to Rowan Kinnane—his sister, and Adair’s childhood best friend. As the two begin investigating, secrets long buried rise to the surface, complicating their sense of themselves and their understanding of what happened on that fateful day.
With her “knack for capturing heartbreaking moments with a gripping simplicity” (Village Voice), Kathleen Donohoe lures us into a haunting world of secrets and obsessions and shows just how far people will go in search of the truth.”
As usual, to participate, we ask that you purchase the book from us. You can still join the discussion if you already own the book, however, in that case, we ask you to purchase another book through the store or make a donation. Please contact us to participate! *We will only share the Zoom link with those who have reached out to us.
