The Book Thief

An Evening with Author Markus Zusak

Sunday, September 8, 2013 at 7:00pm


Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking novel THE BOOK THIEF 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 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.
THE BOOK THIEF spent over 350 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List, has won countless awards and will soon become a major motion picture distributed by 20th Century Fox on November 15th.

“Deserves a place on the same shelf with The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank…. Poised to become a classic.”  – People
