The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow is a novel about a remarkable boy who has never made a sound but has a rare gift for hearing. His mother and grandmother are grieving for his father, William, who was murdered before he was born. With the help of his father’s spirit and others who have special gifts, Bonaventure finds the key to mysteries, family secrets ad healing.
The goal of One Book is simple...to get a lot of people in the area to read the same book at the same time and then encourage them to talk about it. By doing so, we hope that more people (especially more young people) will enjoy reading.
One Book, One Middletown is made possible by the support of Russell Library, The City of Middletown and a variety of community resources.
Following the book signing on March 22nd, there are more than 15 additional events through April 8th including a number of book discussions, video and film talks, as well as a Bereavement Discussion led by Chaplain McCann at Middlesex Hospital in North One Conference Room on April 2 at 7pm.
