Field Notes Book Group

Saturday, October 20, 2018 - 11:30am

Join the Field Notes Book Group on Saturday, October 20, from 11 to 12:30 at The Field Library Gallery for coffee, snacks and a lively discussion of this month's book, The Nightingale,  by Kristin Hannah.  Copies of the book will be available at the Circulation Desk.

The Nightingale, a bestseller for years, and also a favorite of book groups throughout the Westchester Library System, is a novel featuring two sisters, very different, who are brought together when the older sister's husband is sent to fight in World War II.  Viann, the younger sister, leaves her home in Paris to stay with her older sister, Isabelle, and her daughter in rural France.  Both of them and their relationships will be challenged, as will their very notions of right and wrong, courage and cowardice, by the extraordinary conditions of the war and the occupation.

Join us for what promises to be a fascinating discussion, together with our usual coffee and refreshments.
