Contemporary Evening Book Discussion: The Return: Fathers, Sons and the Land in Between, by Hisham Matar
June 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This Pulitzer Prize winning memoir about fathers and sons is a legacy of loss and healing. The author was a 19 year old university student in England when his father went missing under mysterious circumstances. Never giving hope that he might be alive, he returned to his native Libya twenty-two years later in search of the truth. A brilliant, universal tale of hope and resilience in the face of unthinkable loss.
Moderated by Professor Mike Boecherer of SCCC
