Due to the weather I've moved this meetup to next Sunday, 12/15. Please RSVP for this date, so I know everyone got this message. Thanks! Be safe today.
I've always wanted to try this place. It's French so it makes sense to drink french wine - bring yoour favorite - red or white ($10-15).
I have a book in mind for the next time we dine at a French restaurant but for this one let's stick with a popular choice from the recent poll - The book thief by Markus Zusak. Not France but it takes place not far away - Germany. The kindle edition is also just 3.99 on amazon. The book is a bit long, so if you're like me you may want to start it now. Below is a description. I've not heard of this movie so I'm not sure how accurate that part is.
Publication Date: December 18, 2007
The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that will be in movie theaters on November 15, 2013, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul.
It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.
Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.
In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.
