Please join us as the Library Book Discussion Group will meet in person on Thursday, November I0th at 1 p.m. in the Library to discuss the book, How To Find Your Way in the Dark, by Derek Miller. This book is the winner of the Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL) 2022 Jewish Fiction Award. It is, by turns, a comedy, a murder mystery, and the coming-of-age story of its protagonist, twelve-year-old Sheldon Horowitz. The lead-up to World War II permeates the action of the story. Miller’s writing defies gender norms in crafting male characters who love their toys but don’t fear to express their emotions. How To Find Your way in the Dark is a wide ranging story with engaging characters and nonstop action, and Derek Miller is a deft plotter who juggles characters and settings with the same daring spirit as his hero.
