Previous Book: Salt to the Sea

We are reading to page 50 for our next meeting.

Why should we read books set in other countries? What do we gain from another country’s literary canon? Even if books don’t have literary merit, what can we take away from fun fictional titles set abroad? What does international historical fiction teach us?

Do you prefer nonfiction or historical fiction?

Would both adults and teens enjoy Salt to the Sea? How would this book read differently as an adult fiction title? Do you like reading YA, and what are the genre’s merits? What are teen fiction’s downfalls?

Do you enjoy reading books with alternating narratives? This writing style is currently trending. What do readers gain through multiple perspectives? If you could choose only one character to tell their story in Salt to the Sea, who would you want to hear from the most and why? What other books can you think of with multiple narrators?
