At this event, author and faculty member Alice LaPlante will kick off a book discussion with general remarks, addressing some of the issues brought up in the ongoing online discussion around her novel, Turn of Mind. An engrossing mystery thriller about a retired orthopedic surgeon with dementia, LaPlante brings us into the world of a brilliant woman’s deteriorating mind, also the prime suspect in her best friend's murder.
Each year at Reunion Homecoming, Stanford Book Salon begins our new season with this One Book event. We invite alumni and friends to join classmates returning to campus for their reunion in an engaging book discussion.
