1st of January – Unbroken

Standard

This is a perfect book for the new year. If we ever need inspiration this little known (to me) story can do that.  Louie’s journey is nothing short of incredible.  I very much look forward to discussing it. Author, Laura Hillenbrand has a wonderful site with information about her subjects. Discussion questions for this book can be found at this link: http://laurahillenbrandbooks.com/discussion-questions/

On of our members also found this interesting interview with Ms. Hillenbrand where she speaks about both Seabiscuit (past book club book) and Unbroken.http://www.biography.com/news/laura-hillenbrand-unbroken-interview

Finally, here is a segment about Louis Zamperini.
