Lunchtime discussion on 'The Book Thief' at Derby Public Library

DERBY >> The Derby Public Library has scheduled its next Lunchtime Book Discussion for Wednesday, May 27 at 12:30 p.m. The selected title is the bestselling novel "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak.

Trying to make sense of the horrors of WWII, Death relates the story of Liesel, a young German girl whose book-stealing and story-telling talents help sustain her family and the Jewish man they are hiding, as well as their neighbors.

Multiple copies of the book are available at the circulation desk. Participants are asked to bring a sandwich and a friend as they “chat and chew.” Dessert and beverages will be provided. Registration is requested.

This is a press release from Library Director Cathy Williams. For more information, stop by the library at 313 Elizabeth St. or call 203-736-1482 or visit www.derbypubliclibrary.org
