Tag Archives: The Meaning of Names
It’s a dark and stormy #BookFaceFriday!
This week’s #BookFaceFriday is a past One Book One Nebraska selection, we keep all past OBON book club kits, so if you haven’t read them all now’s your chance! “The Meaning of Names” by Karen Gettert Shoemaker (Red Hen Press, 2015), was the 2016 selection and is a great read for book clubs! This title is also available as an ebook in Nebraska OverDrive Libraries. You can find all of the OBON titles on our Book Club Kits page; just search “One Book One Nebraska” in the Keyword search box. Add it to your to-be-read list today!
“The Meaning of Names… explores exactly that – what message does a simple name convey? How is that meaning twisted during times of trial? Shoemaker presents readers with a simple, realistic cast of characters, a heart-rending story of endurance, and reminds us that both prejudice and forgiveness take many forms.”
