March Book Club
Set in 1945 post-war Barcelona, The Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (translated by Lucia Graves) takes the reader on a magical journey through the streets and lives of this fascinating city. The story twists and turns with a secret library, The Cemetery of Forgotten Books, where everything begins. Invited to "adopt" one of the lost volumes in the cemetery, Daniel, a young boy of 10, is whisked up by a series of unimaginable events.
This month's Book Club meeting will be held on Thursday, March 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the community room of the library. Please join the book club to discuss what some have claimed as a "great work" and others contest that it is "an overblown romance and pseudo-literature."
