Evening Book Discussion STRONGER by Jeff Bauman

Evening Book Discussion STRONGER by Jeff Bauman

Join us in the library's Community Room on Thursday October 7th from 7 to 8pm to discuss STRONGER by Jeff Bauman!

Goodreads Description:  The New York Times bestselling memoir of the 27-year-old Boston Marathon bombing survivor, Jeff Bauman.  When Jeff woke up on Tuesday, April 16th, 2013 in the Boston Medical Center, groggy from a series of lifesaving surgeries and missing his legs, the first thing he did was try to speak. When he realized he couldn't, he asked for a pad and paper and wrote down seven words: "Saw the guy. Looked right at me," setting off one of the biggest manhunts in the country's history. In Stronger, Jeff describes the chaos and terror of the bombing itself and the ongoing FBI investigation in which he was a key witness. He takes us inside his grueling rehabilitation, and discusses his attempt to reconcile the world's admiration with his own guilt and frustration. . Brave, compassionate, and emotionally compelling, Jeff Bauman's story is not just his, but ours as well. 

Books will soon be available at the library's Circulation Desk!
