Program Description:

All are invited to join in the discussion of this year’s St. Johns Reads Selection, Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. Before We Were Yours is a story told from dual viewpoints: a 12 year old girl in 1939 Tennessee struggles to keep her siblings together after having been taken away from their parents; a successful prosecutor with a bright future returns to South Carolina to care for her ailing father and starts to uncover the mysterious past of her grandmother. A brutal tale told with deep emotional connections and tenderness, the book is energized by the journey to where these two stories intersect.
