Glocester Senior Center Book Discussion Wednesday October 14, 2020
1:00 PM until 2:00 PM
Join us for a discussion of the The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted by Robert Hillman. It is 1968 in rural Australia and lonely Tom Hope can't make heads or tails of Hannah Babel. Newly arrived from Hungary, Hannah is unlike anyone he's ever met--she's passionate, artistic, and fiercely determined to open sleepy Hometown's first bookshop. Despite the fact that Tom has read only one book in his life, the two soon discover an astonishing spark. Recently abandoned by an unfaithful wife, Tom dares to believe that he might make Hannah happy. But Hannah is a haunted woman. Twenty-four years earlier, she had been marched to the gates of Auschwitz.
Copies of the book are available at Harmony Library.
This discussion group traditionally meets at the Glocester Senior Center, but, due to covid-19, Harmony Library will host, using an outdoor space if the weather cooperates or an indoor space that allows for social distancing. We will relocate to the Senior Center if conditions improve at some point in the future.
New members are welcome!
