We’ll be discussing The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
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.

We’ll be discussing Honolulu by Alan Brennert
The rich, unforgettable story of a young “picture bride” who journeys to Hawai’i in 1914 in search of a better life. With its passionate knowledge of people and places in Hawai’i far off the tourist track, Honolulu is most of all the spellbinding tale of four women in a new world, united by dreams, disappointment, sacrifices, and friendship.
