Malibu - The Malibu Book Group discusses "The Silver Star"
Diesel, a bookstore - Malibu, Wednesday, August 13 at 4:45pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Malibu welcomes the Malibu Book Group back to the store to discuss The Silver Star by Jeannette Walls on Wednesday, August 13th at 4:45 pm.

In a small town in California, 1970, “Bean” Holladay, 12, and her sister, Liz, 15, have been left to fend for themselves for a month or two. Their artistic mother has taken off to find herself, leaving them with a bit of money and an admonition not to forget to floss. When the police show up, the sisters jump on a bus headed for their Uncle Tinsley in Virginia. As they adjust to life in their new situation – taking odd jobs and baby-sitting, going to school – it is Bean who easily adjusts, while Liz becomes increasingly withdrawn. But when misfortune strikes, the girls learn hard lessons about the world’s flaws and injustices.

Unless otherwise listed, the Malibu Book Group meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 4:45pm at our Malibu store. Meetings are free and open to the public, so come on down!

Location: Street: DIESEL, A Bookstore in Malibu Additional: Malibu Country Mart - 23410 Civic Center Way, Suite A-3 City: Malibu, Province: California Postal Code: 90265 Country: United States (added from IndieBound)
