Anthony Doerr 

When: Thu., July 17, 7:30 p.m. 2014
All the Light We Cannot See is an ambitious, heart-wrenching novel from award-winning author Anthony Doerr. Broadly speaking, it's about a blind French girl and a brilliant German boy whose paths collide in occupied France during World War II—but that description undersells the intelligence, clarity, and rigor of Doerr's prose. From sea creatures to radio signals, gemstones to German military schools, Doerr writes with gentle authority on a wide range of subjects. It's painful at times, of course—there are hella Nazis in it—but Doerr finds reason for hope in the tiny spark of a love story set during a time of great horror. ALISON HALLETT
