Booklovers are in for a treat with February’s book selection, The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles. Based on the true World War II story of the heroic librarians at the American Library in Paris, this is an unforgettable story of romance, friendship, family, and the power of literature to bring us together.
In this month’s book box you’ll find:
Book Lover Socks, Gook Luck Sock Co, Edmonton, AB. What can be more fun for book lovers than to cozy up with their book while wearing a pair of fun book socks? They also remind us of the lifeline books created in the story, for Odile, the librarians, the soldiers, and the community.
Library Cards & Pockets, Home to Heather, Calgary, AB. Odile has a passion for books and loves to read the library cards to see who has read a book before her, creating a connection between them. You can keep track of who has read your books with your very own cards.
Word Nerd Postcards, The Regional Assembly of Text, Vancouver, BC. Letter writing is a lifeline in The Paris Library for those gone off to war. These postcards will give all of you word lovers a chance to stay in touch the old fashioned way with friends and family.
French Onion Jam, Provisions Food Co, Beamsville, ON. This gorgeous jam recalls the Paris setting of the book, the food once enjoyed and in short supply during the war.
Bibliophile Bookmark. The Paris Library is a tribute to book lovers, so you’ll want to hold your place with this beautiful bookmark designed especially for us.
Ms Charles was kind enough to grant us an exclusive interview, which you’ll find in the brochure.
