The Sunday Assembly Gainesville virtual book club continues in February with members reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. According to Wikipedia:
The Elegance of the Hedgehog (French: L'Élégance du hérisson) follows events in the life of a concierge, Renée Michel, whose deliberately concealed intelligence is uncovered by an unstable but intellectually precocious girl named Paloma Josse. Paloma is the daughter of an upper-class family living in the upscale Parisian apartment building where Renée works. Featuring a number of erudite characters, The Elegance of the Hedgehog is full of allusions to literary works, music, films, and paintings. It incorporates themes relating to philosophy, class consciousness, and personal conflict.
The Book Club will meet Saturday, Feb. 13 at 11:00am.
