MWO Book Club: The Shadow of the Wind

  • Achilles Art Cafe (map)

MWO's Heart-to-Heart Series continues with its 6th monthly book club meet-up. 

We would like for you to join us in a discussion of our latest read, The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

A New York Times Bestseller:

Barcelona, 1945: A city slowly heals in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, and Daniel, an antiquarian book dealer’s son who mourns the loss of his mother, finds solace in a mysterious book entitled The Shadow of the Wind, by one Julián Carax. But when he sets out to find the author’s other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Carax’s books in existence. Soon Daniel’s seemingly innocent quest opens a door into one of Barcelona’s darkest secrets--an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love.
