Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller (RANDOM HOUSE)

Tuesday • September 6 • 1pm

Bellevue Store

Feed your body and your mind. Bring your lunch and join us on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm to talk books at the Book Bites Book Club.

Raised in southern and central Africa by a father who fought for the white government in the Rhodesian civil war and a mother who loved by teaching self-sufficiency and resilience, Alexandra Fuller remembers her African childhood with visceral authenticity in her acclaimed memoir Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight. In it, what unfolds is a poignantly written story of a girl becoming a woman and a writer against a backdrop of unrest—not just in her country but in her home—and a portrait of one woman's unbreakable bond with a continent and the people who inhabit it.

Underground in Berlin: A Young Woman's Extraordinary Tale by Marie Jalowicz Simon (HACHETTE)

Thursday • September 8 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

From history to memoir to cultural criticism—The Odd Shelf Book Club meets the second Thursday of each month at 6:30pm to discuss the best in new and classic non-fiction.

A thrilling piece of undiscovered history, Underground in Berlin is the true account of a young Jewish woman who survived World War II in Berlin. In 1942, Marie Jalowicz Simon, a twenty-year-old Jewish Berliner, made the extraordinary decision to do everything in her power to avoid the concentration camps. She removed her yellow star, took on an assumed identity, and disappeared into the city. Told in her own voice with unflinching honesty, her singular memoir offers a surreal, sometimes absurd portrait of day-to-day life in wartime Berlin and an unparalleled glimpse into what it truly means to be human.
