Virtual Book Group: The Yellow Bird Sings
Virtual Book discussion followed by a conversation with author Jennifer Rosner.
As World War II rages, a Polish mother hides with her young daughter, a musical prodigy whose slightest sound may cost them their lives. As Nazi soldiers round up the Jews in their town, Róza and her 5-year-old daughter, Shira, flee, seeking shelter in a neighbor’s barn. Hidden in the hayloft day and night, Shira struggles to stay still and quiet, as music pulses through her and the farmyard outside beckons. Rosner’s debut novel is a World War II story with a “Room”-like twist, one that also deftly examines the ways in which art and imagination can sustain us.
