Village Literary Club
Tuesday, July 18 at 6:00 pm to 7:30 (signup deadline was 12 pm, Jul 17)
In July the Village Literary Club turns to the Middle-East with Hisham Matar`s "The
Return: Fathers, Sons, and the Land In Between" (2016, 243 pp)." The Return" is an
"eloquent" memoir of a son`s search for a father imprisoned by Qaddafi. It is a story
of exile--what it`s like to create a life in a new country-- and also a suspenseful
detective story that reads like a "microcosm of what the Middle East has experienced
as democratic hopes have crashed and burned." Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer, and on
the "10 Best Books" lists for the NY Times, the Post, and The Guardian.
