TRUMBULL, Conn. -- One Book One Town programs at the Trumbull Library will run from March 2 through 29. The current book is "All the Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr.
The WWII novel is the winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, the 2015 Carnegie Medal for Excellence and the 2014 National Book Award. Doerr creates an ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.
Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, the author illuminates the ways people try to be good to one another against all odds. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is Doerr’s most decorated work.
