    Next on the Reading Group list!

              A Long Time Gone

    Our next selection is Salt Houses by Hala Alyan, a National Reading Group Month 2017 pick! This multi-generational saga of a Palestinian Arab family diaspora is a noteworthy writing debut. We will also be reading A Long Time Gone by Karen White as a comparative. White's novel focuses on the ties that bind three generations of women in a Mississippi Delta family. The discussion will center around the familial and societal conflict that drive both novels. 

    This event is moderated by Jill Wisoff. Food and beverages are available for purchase.

    Happy Reading!
