Books Sandwiched In Meeting Sept. 6

Post Date:08/23/2017 4:29 PM
ANNE FRANK DIARY OF A YOUNG GIRL

Books Sandwiched In will meet at 11:30 am. Wednesday, Sept. 6 at Chapel Hill Public Library, 100 Library Drive, for a discussion of The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank with a forward by Eleanor Roosevelt.

Each September Books Sandwiched In discusses a book that has been banned at some point since its creation, as was The Diary of Anne Frank.

This later edition of the beloved classic contains entries from the 25 trying months of the family in hiding in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. Anne Frank received a blank diary for her thirteenth birthday, just weeks before they went into hiding. She filled it with her personal entries of claustrophobic, quarrelsome intimacy with her parents, sister, a second family, and elderly dentist who has little tolerance for Anne’s vivacity. The diary has vivid grubby details of the wartime struggles and candid discussions of emotions familiar to teenagers. Her later entries reveal her compassion and spiritual depth. Just 15, Anne died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in March 1945. This is a moving and eloquent document of the Holocaust.

Books Sandwiched In selections for the year are chosen by the members and can be found on the Friends' web site at www.friendschpl.org. We hope you will join us.
