Please join us for the Virtual Book Discussion with Lauren B. Davis. We will discuss Lauren’s new novel, “Even So”. Sr. Rita Woehlcke and Patricia Smith will join the conversation. Lauren B. Davis explores what it means to love others — even the selfish, the careless, and those who not only are harmed by others, but who also do harm — in her latest novel "Even So." Set in Princeton and nearby Trenton, it is a story of both passion and compassion that tackles the challenge and necessity of loving difficult people. Please register at this link.   About the Speakers: Lauren B. Davis is the author of "The Grimoire of Kensington Market," "Against a Darkening Sky," "The Empty Room," "Our Daily Bread," and "The Radiant City." “Even So”, already a bestseller, is her seventh novel.
