The Book Thief (9/16 or 9/29)

The afternoon and the evening groups will be reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak for our September meetings. Come in and pick up a copy!
Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking 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 of the ability of books to feed the soul. --
