Event Description

February 13, 2014 Updated Feb 13, 2014 at 10:28 AM EDT

Join us on Tuesday, March 11 at 6:30 PM to discuss The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, recently released as a motion picture on November 8, 2013.

It is 1939 in Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who 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.

Book Discussions will be held in the basement meeting room.
