Library Hours During the Thanksgiving Break

Friends of the Library Noon Book Discussion
Tuesday, November 20 the book Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky will be discussed at the E.G. Fisher Public Library from noon to 1:00 pm.  Irene Nemirovsky was a celebrated novelist living in Paris during the 1930’s and 1940’s.  Suite Francaise, consisting of two novellas out of a planned five, is an unfinished work that is fascinating on two levels: it is fiction that brilliantly captures the exodus from Paris and the everyday life of the French during Nazi occupation as it was happening, and it is unfinished because Nemirovsky, originally of Russian Jewish descent, was suddenly deported to Auschwitz.  Discussion leader:  Julie Adams, TWC librarian.

Quotation of the Week:
“Fiction allows us to slide into these other heads, these other places, and look out through other eyes.” Neil Gaiman

Go to the Noon Book Discussion even if you haven’t read the book (which is very good). Julie Adams always does a great review.
