Next Book Club Selection - Survival in Auschwitz

I just got home from book club and it was great to see the girls and talk about the book. Everyone loved the book and enjoyed the entire thing. I think we were all pleased that it was an easy read and could be enjoyed by just about anyone.

Several of us brought suggestions tonight for the next selection, so choosing the next book was a bit challenging. We decided that since the last two books have been lighthearted reads, that we would challenge ourselves with a more deep and somewhat dark book. The next selection for book club is 'Survival in Auschwitz' by Primo Levi. This book tells a story of an Italian Jew that spent 10 months in the German death camp Auschwitz and told his story in this riveting memoir originally published in 1947. I can already tell that this book will be tough to read but hopefully inspiring and touching as well. I just ordered my copy online and hope to start reading the book sometime next week!
