Join us for a lively and thoughtful discussion of Bomb Shelter: Love, time, and other explosives by Mary Laura Philpott.

Join us for a lively and thoughtful discussion of Bomb Shelter: Love, time, and other explosives by Mary Laura Philpott. Copies of this book will be available for pick-up at the Richmond Heights information desk one month prior to the discussion date. Call 440.449.2666 if you require further information.

As a daughter, mother, and friend, Mary Laura Philpott considered herself an “anxious optimist”—a natural worrier with a stubborn sense of good cheer. And while she didn’t really think she had any sort of magical protective powers, she believed in her heart that as long as she loved her people enough, she could keep them safe.

Then, in the early hours of one dark morning at home, her belief was upended. In the months that followed, she turned to poignant memories, priceless stories, and a medley of coping mechanisms (with comically mixed success) to regain her equilibrium and find meaning in everyday wonders.

Hailed by The Washington Post as “Nora Ephron, Erma Bombeck, Jean Kerr, and Laurie Colwin all rolled into one,” Philpott tackles the big questions of life, death, and existential fear—not to mention the lessons of an inscrutable backyard turtle—with hope, humor, and joy.
