Antrim Eclectic Book Club to discuss ‘The Nightingale’

Published: 12-05-2023 1:35 PM

On Thursday, Dec. 21, from 2:15 to 3:15 p.m , at the James A. Tuttle Library, 45 Main St., Antrim Eclectic Book Club readers will discuss Kristin Hannah’s "The Nightingale."

“The Nightingale" tells the story of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France. Among the questions book club members may discuss are why would someone read a novel set in such depressing circumstances, now Vianne makes ethical choices when she is, at the same time, trying to protect her daughter and husband, how gender roles affect this narrative and what scenes readers found emotionally charged.

The Antrim Eclectic Book Club meets  on the third Thursday each month. Free copies of the book will be available for loan at the library. For information, send email to Steve Ullman at stephenhullman@gmail.com. Newcomers are welcome.
