Book Discussion Group
Northampton Area Public Library's book discussion group will be meeting on Wednesday, May 28th, at 7:00 PM. The book being discussed is Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. If you would like to participate in the discussion, please call or stop by the library to get the book.
From the back of the book:
"Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten-year-old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door-to-door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard--their secret hiding place--and promises to come back for him as soon as they are released.
Sixty years later: Sarah's story intertwines with that of Julia Jarmond, an American journalist investingating the roundup. In her research, Julia stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own romantic future."
