Dallas Holocaust Museum presents iRead Book Club: The Book Thief
Join the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance as they read books that move us and discuss key literary and historical points. Most importantly, they will discuss the personal impact of what they read. This month, they will discuss Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief. This discussion is suitable for ages 11 and up.
The Book Thief is set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches 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, she 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 before he is marched to Dachau.
This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
