BOOK DISCUSSION: THE SEIGE
Tuesday February 20, 2018
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM
~~ The Seige by Helen Dunmore
Discussion led by Amy Harris.
Multiple copies at the library. All readers welcome. Light refreshments served.
Called "elegantly, starkly beautiful" by The New York Times Book Review, The Siege is Helen Dunmore's masterpiece. Her canvas is monumental -- the Nazis' 1941 winter siege on Leningrad that killed six hundred thousand -- but her focus is heartrendingly intimate. One family, the Levins, fights to stay alive in their small apartment, held together by the unlikely courage and resourcefulness of twenty-two-year-old Anna.
