Book Club Reads Mark Zusak's Compelling Tale
The book club will cover The Book Thief this February. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau.
This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul.
We welcome all interested readers to join us for a discussion on the book, refreshments, and coffee.
The book club meets the second Wednesday of every month at 10:00 am. For more information and/or book suggestions, please contact the branch at 281-426-3521. We hope to see you there!
