2015 11 front of houseThe January CHNA Porch Party will be held January 16th from 6-8 PM at the home of Amy and Kevin Kelso, 765 24th Ave North.

Book Nook | All the Light We Cannot See

all-the-light-we-cannot-seeOur January selection is All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.

The following review was submitted by book club member Pat Wood who selected this month’s book. A beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris. When she is six, she goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature replica of their neighborhood so she can memorize it and navigate her way home. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo. They carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.

In the same time period in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up enchanted by a crude radio. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these instruments, a talent that wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of the war and, finally, into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure’s converge.

The January book club meeting will be held on January 26th at 762 26th Avenue North at 7 pm. Please join us for an interesting, friendly, and fun discussion.

Book Nook | Girl Waits With Gun

girl-waits-with-gunSheila Julian picked February’s book and sent the following review:

From New York Times best-selling author, Amy Stewart, comes an enthralling novel based on the forgotten true story of one of the nation’s first female deputy sheriffs. In fact the title, Girl Waits With Gun, is an actual newspaper headline about lead character Constance Kopp. As a woman living at the end of the Victorian era, Miss Kopp doesn’t quite fit the mold. She towers over most men, has no interest in marriage or domestic affairs, and has been isolated from the world since a family secret sent her and her sisters into hiding fifteen years prior. One day a belligerent and powerful silk factory owner runs down their buggy, and a dispute over damages turns into a war of bricks, bullets, and threats as he unleashes his gang on their family farm. When the sheriff enlists her help in convicting the men, Constance is forced to confront her past and defend her family — and she does it in a way that few women of 1914 would have dared.

February’s book club discussion will be at 835 26th Avenue N. New members, friends, and neighbors are always welcome. For more information please contact maurcamp@verizon.net.
