Fiction Book Discussion

We'll meet at the library to discuss And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini.

Master storyteller Khaled Hosseini brings us his third novel told in a series of interlocking stories set in an Afghanistan village in 1952. Saboor, a desperate father, must give away his daughter to a wealthy man in Kabul. The stories within the story are told through multiple viewpoints, over more than fifty years.

Books are available at the Ask Us Desk one month before each discussion. Registration is not required.
