Book Club: "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers" by Maria A. Trapp

Adults

Join our Marathon City Branch staff and other book lovers for an engaging discussion in August about Trapp's take on a beloved film!

With nearly 1,500 Broadway performances, six Tony Awards, more than three million albums sold, and five Academy Awards, The Sound of Music - based on the lives of Maria, the baron, and their singing children - is as familiar to most of us as our own family history. But much about the real-life woman and her family was left untold. In her classic memoir, Baroness Maria Augusta Trapp tells in her own beautiful, simple words the extraordinary story of her romance with the baron, their escape from Nazi-occupied Austria, and their life in America.

Our group will meet safely at a distance outside of the branch if the weather's nice, but we'll also have a virtual option for participants who can't or choose not to attend in person. Call the Marathon City Branch for more information.
