Valerie is an author, entertainment writer, and poet! People who lose loved ones to terminal illnesses grieve differently than those whose loved ones just pass away.

Book Discussion Group - 1984 by George Orwell
Get the neighborhood read. Check out what the librarian has recommended, and hear what others think about it. We've got the books, now we need you to talk! Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, his dystopian vision of a government that will do anything to control the narrative is timelier than ever... “The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”
