October Book Club Selection: Sarah’s Key

September 28, 2011  

Our book to read for October is Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. In the summer of 1942, the French police arrested thousands of Jewish families and held them outside of Paris before shipping them off to Auschwitz. On the 60th anniversary of the roundups, an expatriate American journalist covering the atrocities discovers a personal connection – one such family formerly occupied her apartment. She resolves to find out what happened to Sarah, the 10-year-old daughter, who was the only family member to survive… De Rosnay’s novel is captivating, and the powerful narration gives it even greater impact.
