Come join the Côte Saint-Luc Women’s Social Club at the ACC and hear CSL librarian, Melissa, talk about The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson. It will be held on Wednesday, June 10th at 1:45pm. The book is from the same author who brought you The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared. This is the author’s second novel.
How fast can a 15-year-old South African girl turn things on its head? With a clever and literate Nombeko, she is able to change her life and save the king of Sweden! From being orphaned young and escaping her fate with a handful of diamonds in her pocket, to being held prisoner by an incompetent engineer, the people she meets and the situations she encounters will keep you entertained long after the last page is read. Jonasson tackles issues ranging from the pervasiveness of racism to the dangers of absolute power while telling a charming and hilarious story along the way.
You are encouraged to share your thoughts with others and to ask any questions you may have about the book—except for the ending!
If you have any questions about May’s title, The Secret of Magic, Melissa will be happy to answer them.
The library has 3 copies of the current book to be discussed. Put yourself down today!
Coffee, tea and goodies will be provided after the talk, for some friendly socializing. Feel free to bring a friend.
Cost at the door for CSL Women’s Club Members: $3
Cost for Non-members: $4
