Apr 16th , 7:00 PM, “A Poet Pens Fiction ” Book Discussion of Fugitive Pieces by Anne Michaels

In celebration of National Poetry Month, we will examine Poets who also pen Fiction!

Fugitive Pieces” by Anne Michaels

In 1940 a boy bursts from the mud of a war-torn Polish city, where he has buried himself to hide from the soldiers who murdered his family. His name is Jakob Beer. He is only seven years old. And although by all rights he should have shared the fate of the other Jews in his village, he has not only survived but been rescued by a Greek geologist, who does not recognize the boy as human until he begins to cry. With this electrifying image, Anne Michaels ushers us into her rapturously acclaimed novel of loss, memory, history, and redemption.As Michaels follows Jakob across two continents, she lets us witness his transformation from a half-wild casualty of the Holocaust to an artist who extracts meaning from its abyss. Filled with mysterious symmetries and rendered in heart-stopping prose, Fugitive Pieces is a triumphant work.

Book Discussion is Free and open to all ages. Books are available at Stone Soup Books. Stone Soup Books and Café, 908 W. Main St., Waynesboro 540-943-0084, www.stonesoupbooks.net
