Tuesday Book Club Title for March

Tuesday, March 12, 1:00 pm at the Killingworth Library. The memoir “The Choice” by Edith Eva Eger (with Esme Schwall Weigand) is the work to be discussed at the March meeting of the Tuesday Book Discussion Group. Subtitled “Embrace the Possible”, it is the inspiring story of a Hungarian woman whose youthful dreams of being a ballerina and gymnast were destroyed when she was rounded up with her family in 1944 and taken by cattle car to Auschwitz. Her mother’s parting words to her were “Just remember no one can take away from you what you have in your mind.” Barely alive when her camp is liberated, Edith survives to become a teacher and a therapist in America. Her days are spent helping others deal with trauma as she seeks healing herself. The bare bones of the choice for each of us as Eger sees it: “We have the capacity to hate and the capacity to love. Which one we reach for is up to us.” Extra copies are available at the circulation desk. Newcomers always welcome!
