Book Club – June 22

This event is open to members and non-members

Date and Time: We will meet Monday, June 22nd at 2:00 pm
Place: The book store Raconte Moi la Terre’s tearoom, 14 rue du Plat 69002 Lyon (near Place Bellecour)

Our selection for June 22nd is Wild, by Cheryl Strayed, which was made into a film that was released last year starring Reese Witherspoon.

Our next selection will be All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. A blind French girl and an orphaned Nazi conscript anchor Anthony Doerr’s sweeping novel of German occupation. Intricately interlocking sections begin to fall, like tumblers, into place as the novel progresses, while larger themes of loss and isolation play out upon characters’ fixations with radio waves, locksmithing, gemology, and shell collecting. Part historical fiction, part fable, part cabinet of curiosities, All the Light We Cannot See builds its own rare and fabulous world.

We will not meet in July or August and will meet next in September (date TBA).

Let me know if you plan to attend so I can save enough chairs. They serve lunch there if you would like to come earlier.


Event Organizers: Cathy Pfaff, Michelle Clayborne, Lisa Arsac
