Book Discussion Group: The Silent Patient @ Nantucket Atheneum
May 20 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Book Discussion Group: The Silent Patient @ Nantucket Atheneum

Join discussion facilitator Kristin Guay for a conversation about Alex Michaelides mystery The Silent Patient.

Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word.

Alicia’s refusal to talk turns a domestic tragedy into a mystery that captures the public imagination. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London. Theo Faber, a criminal psychotherapist, has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him.

Free admission.
