Maggie O’Farrell’s I AM, I AM, I AM - Defiance of Death

For our November Book Club, we're discussing Maggie O'Farrell's I Am, I Am, I Am: Seventeen Brushes with Death, our first Unabridged Readers' Choice pick! This collection of connected essays elicited a different reaction from each of us . . . some of us definitely liked it more than others.

We'd love to know what you think about this memoir. Join us all month on social media to discuss O'Farrell's work.
