Bring a friend or meet new ones as we get together to discuss the images and issues raised in Jonathan Safran Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

Set in the days after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, the book follows the complex story of a young boy whose father was killed in the disaster. Finding a key in his father’s closet, he begins a journey to find what the key fits and how it was connected to his father.
