Read Around the World Book Club

Shadow of the Wind

Main Library – Wed, March 9 @ 7:oo pm. This month’s selection is The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.  In post-World War II Barcelona, young Daniel is taken by his bookseller father to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, a massive sanctuary where books are guarded from oblivion. Told to choose one book to protect, he selects The Shadow of the Wind, by Julian Carax. He reads it, loves it, and soon learns it is both very valuable and very much in danger.

The Read Around the World Book Club meets once a month to discuss titles from foreign locales.  All books are available from Maplewood Library or through the BCCLS consortium.
