Book Club

In about 2 hours I'll be going to my first meeting with the book club. I'm excited to meet everyone and I just wanted to share the first book we read. It's "Sarah's Key" by Tatiana de Rosnay.

In July of 1942, thousands of Jewish families in France were rounded up and forcibly kept in the Velodrome d'Hiver then sent to concentration camps. The book goes back and forth between 1942 where a little girl and her family are among the thousands rounded up from Paris and 2002 where an American journalist living in Paris learns about these events and starts investigating. It's a great book, so go pick it up if you have a chance!

On a side note, hopefully this weekend I'll be able to start my Valentine's Day wreath so I'll keep you posted.
