Book Discussion – “The Book Thief”

  • Date(s): Monday, March 11th 2013
  • Time: 6 p.m.
  • Location: Niobrara County Library

The second of three book discussions in the “Being Human” series is planned at the Niobrara County Library on Monday, March 11 at 6 p.m.

The multiple award-winning book, “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak will be discussed on March 11 at 6 p.m. The narrator is Death himself, a companionable if sarcastic fellow. Trying to make sense of the horrors of World War II, Death relates the story of Liesel–a young German girl whose book-stealing and story-telling talents help sustain her family and the Jewish man they are hiding, as well as their neighbors.

The series seeks to ask the question what is it to be human – how do circumstances and oft-times dire situations create the human experience?

Wayne Deahl will return to facilitate the discussions and the Wyoming Women’s Center will join via Skype.
