May Twilight Book Club to Discuss "The Book Thief"

The next Friends of the Lane Library’s Twilight Book Club is scheduled for Tuesday, May 6, at 6:30 p.m. in the Dorothy Little Room. The focus of discussion will be The Book Thief, the newest novel by Markus Zusak.

Death narrates this World War II-era story of Liesel Meminger who is taken, at age nine, to live in Molching, Germany, with a foster family in a working-class neighborhood. Stolen books, and the power of the written word, form the backbone of this inspiring story.

"This will be the third gathering of the Twilight Book Club, and we are extremely pleased with turnout as well as the quality of conversation of our previous meetings," comments Friends volunteer Debra Perry who is organizing the book group. "Our goal is to bring together people from the Hampton community who enjoy reading and exchanging ideas about literature. We look forward to another evening of literary conversation and encourage anyone interested -- new and returning members -- to attend."
