FOLK annual meeting, Kona Library Book Club (Jan. 26)


The Friends of the Library, Kona will hold its annual meeting 10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26 on the lanai of the Kailua Kona Library followed by a short reception with refreshments.

Current FOLK members are encouraged to attend as well as those interested in becoming members. Following the reception, the Kona Library Book Club will meet at approximately noon.

This meeting date is a change from the usual third Tuesday of the month due to the library closure for Martin Luther King Day.

The book for this month is “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak. Set during World War II in Germany, this groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich.

Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau.

This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul. Narrated by Death himself, it is the story of a young girl who has new worlds opened to her through reading and how she is sustained by books through the darkest times of the war.

New members are welcome.
