Grief of OthersJoin the Boston Globe Book Club for our first page-to-screen event.

"The Grief of Others" by Leah Hager Cohen

No crocuses yet, but the first Globe Book Club selection of the spring is here -- Leah Hager Cohen's novel, "The Grief of Others," which our reviewer called: "graceful, satisfying, and closely observed." 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.

Join us on our Facebook page in the next few weeks to discuss the book. Then stay tuned for details about our spring event when both the author and the filmmaker will join us for a dual book discussion/movie screening in May.

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