North Shore Book Group

Next meeting is Tues, Nov 12 ,2013 from 6:30 - 7:30 pm at the cafe at the Barnes and Noble at the North Shore Mall in Peabody.

We are a friendly group of women who like to read a variety of genres. Join us for a discussion of our choice of the month and a few laughs!

At this meetup, we'll discuss "The Book Thief " by Markus Zusak


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

 See you then !!!!

    I am so missing the great discussions we had. Unfortunately, I joined a bowling league and didn't realize it was on Tuesdays. I am terrible at bowling, but the captain is someone whom I worked and I feel a commitment to go. If you change the day anytime in the future please keep me on the list. I continue to read the book selections. Hi to all.
