All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr will be the book discussed in English and Spanish.

Anthony Doerr elegantly interweaves the parallel stories of two children doing their best to survive World War II; Werner, a German orphan, and Marie-Laure, a blind girl. Marie-Laure’s father designs a miniature world for his daughter, a replica of their actual neighborhood that enables Marie-Laure to navigate the world. In Germany, Werner’s brilliant mind catches the attention of the Nazis and they use him to track the resistance. This Pulitzer Prize winning novel is a beautiful tale of survival and morality in a war-torn Europe.
