The Happy Hour Book Group will meet at Rubaiyat on Wed. Jan. 16th at 5:15 p.m. to discuss Heather Morris’ “The Tattooist of Auschwitz.” In April 1942, Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is forcibly transported to the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau. When his captors discover that he speaks several languages, he is put to work as a tattooist, tasked with permanently marking his fellow prisoners. One day, he comforts a young woman waiting in line to have her number tattooed. Her name is Gita, and in that first encounter, Lale vows to somehow survive the camp and marry her.
