The Island of Missing Trees Book Cover

The 61st Annual ACE Book Discussion Day will feature an enriching day of discussion of The Island of Missing Trees by Elif Shafak.

Elif Shafak works magic by intertwining the events in the Cypriot Civil War (1974) and its aftermath. The impacts on victims, survivors, and the ecology of the natural world are woven and rewoven in this radiant work. Meet the luminous narrator, a fig tree, whose wisdom affirms that all life on earth is layered with interconnections.
