Hare With the Amber EyesJoin us for a librarian-led discussion about ‘The Hare with the Amber Eyes’ by Edmund de Waal. 

“The Ephrussis were a grand banking family, as rich and respected as the Rothschilds, who "burned like a comet" in nineteenth-century Paris and Vienna society. Yet by the end of World War II, almost the only thing remaining of their vast empire was a collection of 264 wood and ivory carvings, none of them larger than a matchbox.  The renowned ceramicist Edmund de Waal became the fifth generation to inherit this small and exquisite collection of netsuke. Entranced by their beauty and mystery, he determined to trace the story of his family through the story of the collection.” - Publisher

Take part in our discussion circle and learn about new topics, world events, and literature as we explore a different non-fiction title each month. This program is free and space is limited.  Register in person at the Bob Prittie Metrotown Branch or by calling 604-436-5400. Once registered, bring your library card anytime on, or after, November 24th to pick up your copy of the book at the Bob Prittie Metrotown Branch second floor Reference Desk.  Participants are asked to complete the book in advance of the event.

Please note: the book originally scheduled for the December meeting, 'The Old Ways' by Robert MacFarlane, has been changed to 'The Hare With the Amber Eyes.'
