Coffee, Books and More
Coffee, Books, and More…Book Discussion
The goal of this group is to read a variety of books, both fiction and non-fiction, that will stimulate the mind and some lively conversation. This book discussion meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 10 a.m. in Meeting Room B at the Library. Books will be available at the Fiction/AV/Teen desk one month prior to the discussion.
The Danish Girl by David Ebershoff
Loosely inspired by the lives of Danish painter Einar Wegener and his California-born wife, this tender portrait depicts both the unique intimacy that defines every marriage and the remarkable story of Lili Elbe, a pioneer in transgender history.
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
Doerr illuminates the ways people try to be good to one another even in the harshest of circumstances by deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure, a blind French girl who must flee her home when the Nazis occupy Paris, and Werner, a German orphan admitted to a brutal academy for Hitler Youth.
The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin
Despite her own major achievements, Anne Morrow Lindbergh is viewed merely as Charles Lindbergh's wife. The fairy-tale life she once longed for will ultimately push her to reconcile her desire for independence and to embrace, at last, life's infinite possibilities for change and happiness.
