ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE  by Anthony Doerr

Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure’s agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall.

In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure.

Doerr’s gorgeous combination of soaring imagination with observation is electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work.

Next Meeting Date:  Friday, May 29,  7 PM – 8:30 PM

Donation Fee to cover costs:  $10

Moonflower Yoga also offers fun and varied workshops and events where you can learn something new.   Some of our past happenings  have included feng shui, meditation, women’s health issues, astrology, how to deal with neck/shoulder pain, ways to move towards a healthier diet, and tarot cards.   Workshop and events prices vary depending on the workshop or event. You can also purchase your workshop or event online by clicking on the class schedule tab above and completing the simple registration steps.

And check out our fun Moonflower Yoga Book Club!   It is a great way to meet new people and have lively conversation while enjoying some delicious homemade treats.   The Moonflower Yoga Book Club meets every 4- 6 weeks.   We generally meet on a Sunday afternoon, except for the summer months we will be meeting on a Friday evening.   You are welcome to read the book we have selected and join us.   If you haven’t read the book, you can still join us and help us decide what the next book selection should be.  Further details can be found by clicking on the Events tab above.
