Sisterhood Book Club
April 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Sisterhood Book Discussion Group will be meeting via Zoom on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. We will be discussing Exit West, by Mohsin Hamid. Chris Schluep wrote in the Amazon Book Review: “When Nadia and Saeed fall in love in a distant unnamed city, they are just like any other young couple. But soon bullets begin to fly, fighter jets streak the sky, and curfews fall. As the spell of violence spreads, they flee their country, leaving behind their loved ones. Early in Exit West, the author Mohsin Hamid explains that geography is destiny, and in the case of his two young lovers, geography dictates that they must leave. Hamid offers up a fantastical device to deliver his refugees to places: they pass through magic doors. Rather than unmooring the story from reality, this device, as well as a few other fantastical touches, makes the book more poignant and focused, pointing our attention to the emotions of exile rather than the mechanics.”
