The Traveling Book Group is meeting to discuss We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter on Thursday, May 2 at 7:00. Copies of this book are available at the library. All are welcome to join the discussion.
From Library Reads:
When Georgia Hunter learns that she is a descendant of large family of Holocaust survivors, she knows that she is destined to be the recorder of their story. This is the result of years of research to gather as much detail about her relatives as she possibly can.
How this group of people manages to survive years of persecution and imprisonment is astounding. It is an inspiring read, and one that honors the memory and struggle of not just the author’s family, but all of the people who suffered during the war. — Mary Coe, Fairfield Woods Branch Library, Fairfield, CT.
