Winter Book Club – The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

Due to risk of infection from COVID-19 all library programs are cancelled beginning Tuesday, March 17 until further notice.

Thursday, March 26, 7:00

Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect.  A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas.  One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word.

Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety.  The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London.

Register beginning on Monday, March 2, and pick up your book to get started reading!  Enjoy a great discussion and prizes too!  We’ll see you there!
