Book Club: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Join us virtually to discuss The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Launching in January 2021, our book club is a chance to get together to discuss books with some connection to Jewish culture. Our books will include both fiction and non-fiction, contemporary and classic books by British and international authors and established and aspiring authors. Books will be chosen by a vote and we encourage everyone to make suggestions.

About the book

Our first book club title is the international bestseller The Book Thief by Australian author Markus Zusak. Published in 2005, it has been translated into 63 languages and has been adapted into a film.
1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier. Liesel, a nine-year-old girl, is living with a foster family on Himmel Street. Her parents have been taken away to a concentration camp. Liesel steals books. This is her story and the story of the inhabitants of her street when the bombs begin to fall.

Although we aren't able to gather in person, we can still share our love of books virtually! All welcome.
Register to let us know you'll be coming, and we'll send out a meeting link prior to the event.
