Front cover of the The Giver of Stars

The Giver of Stars

by Jojo Moyes

At its heart, this novel is about all the many ways books can change lives.

Based on a true story, Moyes weaves a poignant tale about the real women who brought the written word to the downtrodden and forgotten people of rural Kentucky during the Great Depression.

It’s also a story about friendship and sacrifice, justice and compassion, and a compelling homage to books that is not to be missed.

Previous Book Club Reads:

Our first recommended book was Stamped - Racism, Anti-Racism, and You by Jason Reynolds and Dr. Ibram X Kendi, a powerful book that gives a historical basis for where we find ourselves today.  

Our second recommended book was Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella, a young adult novel that portrays a teen's life and touches on mental illness and how it affects the protagonist's family.

Our third recommended book was The Vanishing Half by Britt Bennett, a book about identical twins taking two very different paths in life. This riveting story explores how our past shapes us and looks at identity and what it means to stay true to ourselves.

Our fourth recommended book was Anxious People by Fredrik Backman, a novel that “captures the messy essence of being human…It’s clever and affecting, as likely to make you laugh out loud as it is to make you cry” (The Washington Post).
