Book Discussion: Eleven Hours

Hi there!

Sorry we've been a bit behind on posting for the blog! We have finally had a chance to sit down and make a plan for things so we promise to be better about getting content up.

For our second episode, we discussed

Eleven Hours

 by Pamela Erens. The title refers to the time span that readers spend with the two main characters, Lore and Franckline, as Lore goes through labor. Lore arrives alone at the hospital and Franckline is her nurse; both are pregnant. During these eleven hours, they each try to come to terms with their pasts that make them uneasy about bringing a child into their worlds.

It's a very raw read but a rather interesting read!

See you in the stacks!
