All the Light We Cannot See

The Georgetown Book Club's April Selection

Marie-Laure is a blind girl whose life in Paris with her father, a Museum of Natural History locksmith, is upended by the Nazi occupation, which forces the pair to abandon the city for the coast.

Werner and his sister are orphans in Essen, Germany, but he is singled out for his technical capabilities, and as a soldier in the war, his skills lead him to an assignment investigating Resistance activity in France.

The winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2015, Anthony Doerr's novel All the Light We Cannot See follows these two characters as the war shapes their paths and the lives of those around them in lasting ways.

Join the Georgetown Book Club as we discuss All the Light We Cannot See on Thursday, April 21 at 7:30 p.m. Copies are currently available at the Georgetown Neighborhood Library, and everyone is welcome!
