True Story Book Club

Philomena: A Mother, Her Son, and a Fifty-Year Search, by Martin Sixsmith.  When she became pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to a convent to be looked after as a “fallen woman.” Then the nuns took her baby from her and sold him, like thousands of others, to America for adoption. Fifty years later, Philomena decided to find him.  Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, her son was searching for her. Philomena pulls back the curtain on the role of the Catholic Church in forced adoptions and on the love between a mother and son.  Copies available at the check-out desk.  Refreshments served.  In the second floor reading area.
