Join us in person or via Zoom for a literary discussion of
The Paris Library by Janet Skeslian Charles.

"Paris, 1939: Young Odile Souchet has it all; her handsome police officer beau and a dream job at the American Library in Paris. The the Nazis march into Paris. Odile joins the Resistance fighting with the best weapons she has: books. But when the war finally ends, Odile tastes the bitter sting of unspeakable betrayal.  

Montana, 1983: Lily is a lonely teenagers looking for adventure in a small town. Her interest is piqued by her solitary, elderly neighbor and her mysterious past. We find that extraordinary heroism can sometimes be found in the quietest of places." (Goodreads.com)
