Join the Southminster Presbyterian Church Social Justice Book Discussion Group. We will meet on June 18, 2021, as we discuss The Leavers by Lisa Ko. Contact the church office to receive a Zoom link to the discussion meeting.
Lisa Ko’s powerful debut, The Leavers, is the winner of the 2016 PEN/Bellwether Prize for Fiction, awarded by Barbara Kingsolver for a novel that addresses issues of social justice.
Set in New York and China, The Leavers is a vivid examination of borders and belonging. It’s a moving story of how a boy comes into his own when everything he loves is taken away, and how a mother learns to live with the mistakes of the past.
