2:30 PM, Eureka Library's Friday Afternoon Book Group, 'Cloud Cuckoo Land' by Anthony Doerr (Zoom)

Friday, June 10, 2022

A novel about what it is to be young and in peril, and how down the centuries humanity finds hope in stories and libraries. "Wildly inventive, a humane and uplifting book for adults that’s infused with the magic of childhood reading experiences" (The New York Times Book Review). Doerr's "passion for myth and fable lights up this panoramic epic, as an ancient manuscript braids three disparate strands: the 1453 siege of Constantinople, present-day Idaho, and a 22nd-century starship careening away from a poisoned Earth. Doerr's prose casts a spell; his world-building is both defiant and tender, a virtuosic meditation on the alchemy of books. Come for the magician's tricks, stay for the exquisite storytelling." (Hamilton Cain, Star Tribune).
