Upcoming Book Discussions
Wednesday, June 27 at 3:00pm
All discussions take place on the last Wednesday of the month at 3:00pm
The next monthly meeting of the book club will be on Wednesday, June 27, at 3:00. We will discuss “The German Girl” by Armando Correa. This novel tells the story of a family fleeing Germany in 1939, shortly before the outbreak of World War II. The ship, the St Louis, was bound for Cuba, but on arrival the passengers were not allowed to land. The United States and Canada also refused admittance, and the refugees were forced to return to Europe. This is a story that is relevant to our own times.
Copies of the book available to loan by request. New members always welcome!
