December 15th, 2016 by Amy - Library Events and Non-Fiction in Adults, New on the Shelves · Comments Off on Four New Book Discussion Kits Now Available: “All the Light We Cannot See,” “The Light Between Oceans,” “A Man Called Ove,” and “Lilac Girls” ·
Start your own book club today! The Irondequoit Library recently obtained four new Book Discussion Kits that include everything you need to host your own book club. Each Kit includes eight books and eight study guides… all you have to do is get together with your friends and family.
All the Kits are available on the second floor and here’s a quick look at the four we recently added:
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
A blind French girl on the run from the German occupation and a German orphan-turned-Resistance tracker struggle with their respective beliefs after meeting on the Brittany coast.
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia with his wife Isabel and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, an isolated island. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby. Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and discover their choice has devastated someone.
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
A curmudgeon hides a terrible personal loss beneath a cranky and short-tempered exterior while clashing with new neighbors, a boisterous family whose chattiness and habits lead to unexpected friendship.
Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly
A debut novel inspired by the life of unlikely World War II heroine Caroline Ferriday follows the experiences of a Manhattan debutante, who resolves to help upon learning of the atrocities at the Ravensbruck concentration camp; and a Catholic teen, who is swept up in the Polish resistance movement.
