Mostly Literary Fiction Book Group: Discussion of “The Elegance of the Hedgehog”, by Muriel Barbery
Monday, May 10 - Two meetings: Noon at Peet’s Coffee & Tea (B Street & Mission, Downtown Hayward) & 6:30 p.m. at Hayward Main Library, 835 C St. @ Mission Blvd., Hayward, CA 94541 (2 blocks from Hayward BART)
We will be discussing The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery, an enchanting New York Times and international bestseller about life, art, literature, philosophy, culture, class, privilege, and power, seen through the eyes of a 54-year old French concierge and a precocious but troubled 12-year-old girl. A moving, funny, triumphant novel that exalts the quiet victories of the inconspicuous among us.
Choose from two different meeting times and locations — noon @ Peet’s Coffee & Tea or 6:30 p.m. @ the Main Library.
