Adult Book Discussion: The Book Thief (Tue. 24 May, 2016 6:30 pm)

The New York Times bestselling novel, "The Book Thief," by Markus Zusak will be featured at the Danville Public Library Adult Book Discussion on Tuesday, May 24, 6:30 p.m. at McFadden's Hot Spot.

Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul.  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.  She 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.  The heart-warming book was also made into a popular movie.

Guest Sean Smith will lead the discussion.  The program is free and open to the public of all ages.  For more information, call the Danville Public Library at 740-599-BOOK (2665), visit www.knox.net, or email [email protected].
