Ceres Virtual Book Club for Adults

Join us on Zoom to discuss our latest book club selection! This month we will discuss Mr. Nobody
by Catherine Steadman.
When a man is found on a British beach, drifting in and out of consciousness, with no identification and unable to speak, interest in him is sparked immediately. From the hospital staff who find themselves inexplicably drawn to him, to international medical experts who are baffled by him, to the national press who call him Mr. Nobody, everyone wants answers. Who is this man? And what happened to him?
Some memories are best forgotten.
A limited number of copies are available for check out, including large print. Please contact the Ceres Library or your local branch if you would like assistance reserving a copy.
