The Book Thief is the 2012 CNY Reads selection for 2012. The kick-off event will be held at the Erie Boulevard Barnes and Noble on Thursday night, January 12 at 7 p.m.
Local celebrities will be reading out loud from the book. County Executive Joanie Mahoney, news reporter Chris McGrath, local actor Frank Fiumano, and others will each take a turn. Chocolate and live accordion music (accordion playing relates to the book) are also part of the evening.
The Book Thief has been very popular with both adult and YA readers and the Klatch participants read it as one of our selections last year.
In case you read the book and are interested, After Dinner Books, also at the Liverpool Public library, will be discussing the book with the author! On April 5, author Markus Zusak will be beamed into the Carman Community Room via Skype to talk with us. He will be coming to us live from Australia.
