FSC BOOK GROUP: THE BOOK THIEF
920 Market Street
Investment: $10, includes wine and other refreshments
Join us for lively discussion and refreshments during this FSC staff-led, monthly book group. The February selection is
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This international best seller is set in 1939 Nazi Germany. Narrated by Death, it tells the story of Liesel Meminger, a young foster child who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist: books. Each book she steals depicts an important point in her life in her own history, an important lesson learned, a challenge overcome by her or an important person in her life, including the Jewish man her family is hiding.
Note: The FSC Book Group typically meets on the second Thursday of the month. This date is an exception.
