We had almost complete attendance this morning for a comprehensive discussion of Summer Before the War. The story's look at the social divisions in England around the time of World War I reminded us of Downton Abbey.
February's book, All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr, takes us to World War II and how it determined the lives of two young people: a blind French girl and an orphan German boy. Their two lives are running parallel in alternating chapters until they finally intersect at the end of the war.
The book was published by Scribner in 2014 and won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the 2015 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction.
Book have been ordered through interlibrary loan. If you have any questions please contact the Riverton Village Library at 217-629-6353.
See you on February 18th!
Everyone is welcome to attend--even if you do not live in Riverton!
