Adult Book Discussion Group (The Bookmark)

  • The Bookmark 9 Public Square Shelbyville, IN, 46176 United States (map)

Join us for the library's book discussion group at the Bookmark!

The discussion group meets on the third Tuesday of most months. At this meeting, we will be discussing WE WERE THE LUCKY ONES by Georgia Hunter. Books are available by the library's main circulation desk.

Inspired by the incredible true story of one Jewish family separated at the start of World War II, determined to survive—and to reunite—We Were the Lucky Ones is a tribute to the triumph of hope and love against all odds

“Love in the face of global adversity? It couldn’t be more timely.” —Glamour

It is the spring of 1939 and three generations of the Kurc family are doing their best to live normal lives, even as the shadow of war grows closer. The talk around the family Seder table is of new babies and budding romance, not of the increasing hardships threatening Jews in their hometown of Radom, Poland. But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurcs will be flung to the far corners of the world, each desperately trying to navigate his or her own path to safety...

 

Brenda Pavnica, Adult Services Department Head, will lead the discussion. Questions? (317) 398-7121 ext. 222 or bpavnica@sscpl.lib.in.us.
