Lunchtime Book Discussion - Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

Spanning more than twenty years in the lives of three women and based on real people and events, Kelly’s debut novel brings historical facts to life. Caroline is a former Broadway actress and New York socialite who works with the French consulate.  Herta is an ambitious young German doctor, and Kasia is a 15-year old Polish girl just getting involved in the resistance.  As WWII progresses, circumstances draw these women together, resulting in a story that will linger well after the book ends.

Multiple copies are available at the main circulation desk. Bring a sandwich and a friend as you “chat and chew.”  Dessert and beverages will be provided.

Registration is requested.
