Based on “the forgotten tragedy that was six times deadlier than the Titanic.”–Time
Winter 1945. WWII. Four refugees. Four stories.
Each one born of a different homeland; each one hunted, and haunted, by tragedy, lies, war. As thousands desperately flock to the coast in the midst of a Soviet advance, four paths converge, vying for passage aboard the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship that promises safety and freedom. But not all promises can be kept . .
Book Club is open to everyone. Please come to the library media center to sign up or if you have any questions.
As a member of the Book Club, you receive this book free of charge, with the understanding that if you can not attend the scheduled meeting, for any reason, you will be charged for my cost of the book.
Book club meet will meet one Thursday per month, immediately after school in the Library Media Center. Book club lasts for about 1 to 1 ½ hours.
As soon as all the copies of the book come in, I will choose a date for each meeting. You will receive an email and listen for a morning announcement for you to come and pick up the book.
Due to the large number of book club members, if you do not attend the meeting because you have a previous commitment, we will charge you our cost of the book. You might want to consider borrowing a book from someone or taking out a Library copy if you might not be able to attend the meeting for any reason. I CAN’T accept returned books in perfect condition because it has caused me to lose money from Toadstool.
We have snacks and drinks at each meeting. Please be willing to volunteer to bring something in on occasion so that not one person is always bringing in snacks.
