Event Details

Klara is an AF ("Artificial Friend"). Told through her eyes, this novel by Nobel laureate Kazuo Ishiguro opens with Klara in a store, waiting to be purchased.  She's delighted to be chosen by 14-year-old Josie. But Josie is ill, and had an older sister who died young. As Klara learns about the world around her, she discovers truths about people, the difficult decisions they must make, and the complexities of love. One reviewer calls this a “masterpiece that will make you think about life, mortality, the saving grace of love: in short, the all of it”.
