CANCELED - Literature with Lunch Book Group
Literature with Lunch meets the last Thursday of the month at the Chestertown branch. This group reads a mix of fiction and nonfiction and discussion is led by participants. New attendees are always welcome. Feel free to bring your lunch!
February's selection is Wandering Star, by Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio.
Wandering Star tells two discrete stories of two young girls, one Jewish and one Palestinian, who meet once briefly by chance. Their stories are connected by substance, rather than plot. Each is a wandering star in search of a homeland—Esther escaping the Nazi Holocaust, and Nejma, who experiences the horrors of life in the camps. Yet through this novel of dark times and human suffering, affirmation shines as the characters encounter the beauty of nature and instances of human kindness and love.
