The Book Stall is delighted to partner with The Wilmette Public Library to present Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anthony Doerr, discussing his best-selling novel All the Light We Cannot See, now available in paperback. In the novel, a blind French girl and a German boy’s paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.
Jess Walter, author of Beautiful Ruins, calls All the Light We Cannot See “a dazzling, epic work of fiction. Anthony Doerr writes beautifully about the mythic and the intimate, about snails on beaches and armies on the move, about fate and love and history and those breathless, unbearable moments when they all come crashing together."
This event is free and open to the public.
