Berlin Book of the Month - The Paris Architect
Friday, September 16, 2016 - 1:00 PM
Location: Berlin Branch
Berlin Book of the Month
The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure

Belfoure’s suspenseful and commercially oriented debut, set in 1942 Paris, follows a self-centered, ambitious man as he develops a moral conscience. When a rich businessman persuades architect Lucien Bernard to adapt an apartment to create a hiding place for a wealthy Jew, he takes it as a challenge. Despite the dangers, Lucien likes fooling the occupying Germans, the money is excellent, and it comes with a lucrative opportunity to design a new factory for the Reich. Tensions rise as he gets drawn deeply into the plans of both the occupiers and the Resistance. After one careless mistake results in tragedy, however, he begins reevaluating his life. The plot doesn’t skimp on evoking the constant fear the Parisians face or the brutality the Jews encounter. Food is scarce, black market goods are costly, and neighbors rat one another out to save their own necks. With his unadorned, zippy style and broad-brush characters, Belfoure writes like an up-and-coming Ken Follett but with more sex and violence and stronger language. There’s plenty of detail to interest architecture buffs, too. --Sarah Johnson -- BOOKLIST

Join us each month for a lively book discussion facilitated by Cynthia Hanagud and Gail Samis of Salisbury University.
Copies of books are available in advance at the Berlin Library.

Eye Witness Observations and Video Recordings of Criminal Events: A One Maryland One Book Program
Wednesday, September 28 - 2:00 pm
Location: Ocean Pines Branch
Research in psychology has long questioned the accuracy of eye witness accounts of criminal acts. As video recordings of these events have become more common, particularly events involving the use of force by police officers, new questions have been raised about how accurately individuals interpret these events. In the book All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brian Kiely, a violent altercation involving a teenager and a police officer is videotaped and viewed by countless individuals. The interpretations of the event may not always coincide with the eyewitness accounts of those that were actually there that day. This presentation provides connections between research in psychology on this topic as well as specific details described in the fictional novel. This presentation is facilitated by Dr.Lance Garmon of Salisbury University and funded in part by a grant through the Maryland Humanities Council.
