March Book Circle
The Map of Salt and Stars by Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar
Date & Time:
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Luann Dummer Center for Women (OEC 103)
This rich, moving, and lyrical debut novel is to Syria what The Kite Runner was to Afghanistan; the story of two girls living eight hundred years apart—a modern-day Syrian refugee seeking safety and a medieval adventurer apprenticed to a legendary mapmaker—places today’s headlines in the sweep of history, where the pain of exile and the triumph of courage echo again and again.
Discussion will be led by Christine Balsley of the LDCW and Laura Bru of Undergraduate Research.
