Join Cuyahoga County Public Library and WKYC-Channel 3 every third Monday of the month on Live on Lakeside for our book club discussion! We’ll take questions, chat about our takeaways from the books and even hear from the authors themselves.

Outer Order Inner Calm by Gretchen RubinAbout the book

A Brave Face is the inspirational true story of a woman who moved mountains to provide medical care for an Iraqi girl badly burned during a roadside attack, Barbara Marlowe’s determination to fight for her future daughter highlights the way love can reach across both cultures and continents.

The book includes material written by Teeba and her Iraqi mother, Dunia, at key moments in their stories. The book also explores the connection forged between Barbara and Dunia over the past decade — a connection that has survived the strife of war and the horrors of Al-Qaeda and ISIS.
