NUMBER THE STARS by Lois Lowry
Monday, February 4, at 6:00 p.m.

Jeremy Angstadt and David Swaldo, Sandusky Library, discussion leaders
As the German troops begin their campaign to “relocate” all the Jews of Denmark, Annemarie Johansen’s family takes in her best friend, Ellen Rosen, and conceals her as part of the family. Through the eyes of ten-year-old Annemarie, we watch as the Danish Resistance smuggles almost the entire Jewish population of Denmark, nearly 7,000 people, across the sea to Sweden. The heroism of an entire nation reminds us that there was pride and human decency in the world even during a time of terror and war.

ANNE FRANK:  THE BIOGRAPHY by Melissa Müller
Monday, February 25, at 6:00 p.m.

Sandy Zagarell, Oberlin College, discussion leader
Originally published in 1998, now, sixteen years after the book first appeared, much new information has come to light: letters sent by Otto Frank to relatives in America as he sought to emigrate with his family, the identity of other suspects involved in the betrayal of the Franks, and important details about the family’s arrest and subsequent fate. Revised and updated with more than 30% new material, this is an indispensable volume for all those who seek a deeper understanding of Anne Frank and the brutal times in which she lived and died. The book discussion is funded by a grant from the Mylander Foundation.

HILLBILLY ELEGY:  A MEMOIR OF A FAMILY AND CULTURE IN CRISIS by J.D. Vance
Monday, March 25, at 6:00 p.m.

John Montag, discussion leader
The Vance family story begins hopefully in postwar America. J. D.’s grandparents were “dirt poor and in love,” and moved north from Kentucky’s Appalachia region to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them. They raised a middle-class family, and eventually their grandchild (the author) would graduate from Yale Law School. Hillbilly Elegy offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class.

THE COMPLETE PERSEPOLIS by Marjane Satrapi
Monday, April 29, at 6:00 p.m.

Dennis McMullen and David Swaldo, Sandusky Library, discussion leaders
Here, in one volume, is the best-selling, internationally acclaimed graphic memoir of Satrapi’s unforgettable childhood and coming of age within a large and loving family in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution; of the contradictions between private life and public life in a country plagued by political upheaval; of her high school years in Vienna facing the trials of adolescence far from her family; of her homecoming--both sweet and terrible; and, finally, of her self-imposed exile from her beloved homeland. Observant and candid, often heartbreaking, her raw humor and hard-earned wisdom is threaded throughout.
