Saturday Samplers book group (see Saturday Samplers blog here) will discuss Broken for You at its next meeting in the library on Saturday, June 2nd, at 3:30 p.m. Published in 2004, Broken for You is the debut novel of Seattle-based writer Stephanie Kallos. The book received numerous positive reviews, and Kallos was named Best First Novelist in 2005 by Library Journal. Her second book, Sing Them Home, also garnered praise for its development of characters in a physical and spiritual landscape of loss and healing. While her stories deal with death and loss, sadness and broken lives, the author’s use of humor and whimsy lightens the load, reminding us that what is damaged (in life or in the physicality of things) might come to be mended in unexpected ways.
