Canton Seniors Book Group will meet on Thursday, September 25 from 2:00-3:00PM in Canton Public Library's Group Study Room A. We will be discussing Mark Zusak THE BOOK THIEF. Copies of the book can be requested at the Information Services Desk.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. 1939. Nazi Germany. Death has never been busier and is going to become even more so. Orphaned Liesel Meminger is living outside of Munich, scratching out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist-books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, Liesel learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.
