Grief of Others

"The Grief of Others" by Leah Hager Cohen

Join the Boston Globe Book Club for our first page-to-screen event. RSVP for the event on May 13 at 6 p.m. at the Brattle Theatre.

Cohen's powerful, deeply affecting novel about the Ryrie family's struggle to relate to one another in the wake of a tragedy is now a movie, directed by Patrick Wang.

The Globe book club will be hosting the film's Boston premiere, which will happen between its South by Southwest and Cannes debuts. Our event on May 13 at the Brattle Theatre will feature a screening and discussion with both the author and the filmmaker.

Join us on our Facebook page as we discuss the book.

​You can also discuss the book on Twitter @bglobebooks. You can use the hashtag #GlobeBookClub.
