Cooper Memorial Library will feature Hillenbrand's
"Unbroken" as its Book of the Month Club selection
Laura Hillenbrand's "Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption" is the book selection for Cooper Memorial Library's October book club discussion. The discussion group will meet on Tuesday, October 21, at 5pm in room 108.

The book, which was a New York Times bestseller, tells the story of Lois Zamperini, an athlete who competed at the 1936 Berlin Olympics and later became an airman, fighting in WW II.

According to the publisher, "When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft," facing "leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater."

The book was published in paperback for the first time in July of this year. Dennis Smolarek, research librarian at Cooper Memorial Library, invited everyone to "Read the book and join the Book Club discussion."

The library is located at 2525 Oakley Seaver Drive in Clermont. For more information, please call 352-536-2275.
