Shadow of the Wind Book Discussion

Join the Adult Contemporary Book Group on Monday, January 17th, in the Purple Room for a book discussion on The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. In post-World War II Spain, Daniel is taken by his father to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, where books are guarded from oblivion. Told to choose one book to protect, he selects The Shadow of the Wind. He reads it, loves it, and soon learns it is both very valuable and very much in danger of being destroyed by someone burning every copy of the book.
