Mostly Literary Fiction Book Discussion: Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward

As Hurricane Katrina builds over the Gulf of Mexico, threatening the coastal town of Bois Sauvage, Mississippi, 14-year-old Esch and her three brothers are stocking food, but there isn’t much to save. Winner of the 2011 National Book Award, Jesmyn Ward’s big-hearted novel about familial love and community against all odds is the unforgettable story of motherless children sacrificing for one another as they can.
