Books & Brew: Not Your Mother's Book Club (Cagney's)

  • The Horizon Center / Shelby Senior Services 1504 S Harrison St Shelbyville, IN, 46176 United States (map)

This is a community for younger adults, 20s-30s, and the young at heart. We meet once a month to discuss books, films, and other "hot topics" at Cagney's Pizza King. 

Copies of the book are located in the Book Club Display to the right of the main desk in the library. In July, we will be discussing THE NIGHTINGALE by Kristin Hannah.

In love we find out who we want to be. In war we find out who we are.

FRANCE, 1939

In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn’t believe that the Nazis will invade France...but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When France is overrun, Vianne is forced to take an enemy into her house, and suddenly her every move is watched; her life and her child’s life is at constant risk. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates around her, she must make one terrible choice after another...

 

Zachary Balgeman, Assistant Department Head of Adult Services, will lead the discussion. Questions? (317) 398-7121 or zbalgeman@sscpl.lib.in.us
