Saturday Reading Group
The Saturday Reading Group is for anyone who loves to read, socialize in English, and meet new people.
The January read for the group is The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid. At a café table in Lahore, a bearded Pakistani man converses with an uneasy American stranger. As dusk deepens to night, he begins the tale that has brought them to this fateful encounter… Changez is living an immigrant’s dream of America. At the top of his class at Princeton, he is snapped up by an elite valuation firm. He thrives on the energy of New York, and his budding romance with elegant, beautiful Erica promises entry into Manhattan society at the same exalted level once occupied by his own family back in Lahore. But in the wake of September 11th, Changez finds his position in his adopted city suddenly overturned, and his relationship with Erica shifting. And Changez’s own identity is in seismic shift as well, unearthing allegiances more fundamental than money, power, and maybe even love.
Meetings are once a month on Saturday afternoons starting at 3 pm. The meeting for January starts at 2 pm exceptionally to leave time for the Nuit de la Lecture celebration that will be starting at 3pm. Open to all library members.
