About the event
Join us to discuss Roslindale author Jennifer Haigh's new novel, Mercy Street, which centers on 43-year-old Claudia, who has counseled patients for ten years at downtown Boston's Mercy Street clinic. As anti-abortion protests outside the clinic intensify, Claudia manages her anxiety with frequent visits to her affable pot dealer, where she encounters a random assortment of customers, including Anthony, a lost soul who spends most of his life online, chatting with an anti-abortion crusader who has set his sights on Mercy Street and is ready to risk it all for his beliefs.
