We've decided to start a little bookclub and share what we are reading in clinic each month with our community. Feel free to read along and if you're a SSKIN Squad member we can chat about the book in our members Facebook group at the end of the month! We'll be reading a range of books and welcome suggestions too! Our first book was chosen by our Cofounder Amy Hembrow & we've included a little synopsis below:
Klara and the Sun, the first novel by Kazuo Ishiguro since he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, tells the story of Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, who, from her place in the store, watches carefully the behavior of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass on the street outside. She remains hopeful that a customer will soon choose her.
Klara and the Sun is a thrilling book that offers a look at our changing world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator, and one that explores the fundamental question: What does it mean to love?
