LIVINGSTON MANOR BOOK CLUB

Second Tuesday of each month. Call LMFL at (845)-439-5440 in case of changes.

The Book Club will next meet on Tuesday, January 11th, 2022, at 12:30 pm, in person at the library.

For January’s book, the Club will discuss Code Name Hélène by Ariel Lawhon, a novel set in Paris in World War II. The following summary comes from Rachael, the Book List Queen:

“At the top of my list of best book club books for 2021 is Ariel Lawhon’s amazing World War II novel. Nancy Wake, a New Zealander living in Paris, becomes a spy for the British and rises to one of the top leaders of the French Resistance and one of the most decorated women of the war. The story is split into two narratives – the first starting with Nancy parachuting into France in 1944 and the second telling of her courtship with her husband, Henri Fiocca, before the war. You’ll fall in love with Henri and cheer on Nancy as she transforms into a fierce fighter and respected commander. As the earlier timeline catches up with the later one, you’ll feel all the emotions of a woman caught up in a terrible war.”
