Our book is the WWII novel All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr. Programs run from March 2 – March 29th.
ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE by Anthony Doerr is the winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, the 2015 Carnegie Medal for Excellence and the 2014 National Book Award.
Doerr creates an ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, the author illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another.
Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is Doerr’s most ambitious work.
