2015 ADULT SUMMER READING PROGRAM

 


BOOK DISCUSSION

Our summer book selection is The Garden of Letters by Alyson Richman. Set in Italy in 1943, it’s the story of Elodi Bertollotti, a music prodigy, studying in Verona. She ignores the war until her father is beaten by Blackshirts. Elodi joins the Italian resistance movement and uses her music to transmit messages to members of the resistance. The Nazis discover her, and she is almost captured when a total stranger saves her. Free copies of the novel are available at the Circulation Desk while they last.
