Afternoon PageTurners: City of Thieves by David Benioff

The Afternoon PageTurners groups will meet this month to discuss City of Thieves written by David Benioff.
The book is both adventuresome and humorous: During the Nazis brutal siege of Leningrad, Lev Beniov is arrested for looting and thrown into the same cell as a handsome deserter named Kolya. Instead of being executed, Lev and Kolya are given a shot at saving their own lives by complying with an outrageous directive: secure a dozen eggs for a powerful Soviet colonel to use in his daughter’s wedding cake. In a city cut off from all supplies and suffering unbelievable deprivation, Lev and Kolya embark on a hunt through the dire lawlessness of Leningrad and behind enemy lines to find the impossible.
The Monday group will meet October 26 and the Thursday afternoon group on October 22. For more information about PageTurners contact:
