And the Runner Up is...
If you liked this year’s Gulf Coast Reads selection (One Amazing Thing) you should consider reading the runner up book, Zeitoun by Dave Eggers . This New York Times bestselling title is also a 2010 American Book Award winner and the choice for this month's Evening Book Club discussion.
This is the true story of Abdurahman Zeitoun, a successful Syrian-American and father of four who chose to stay and protect his home during Hurricane Katrina. For days afterward, he navigated the flooded streets in a secondhand canoe helping others. A week later, he disappeared, arrested and accused of being an Al-Qaeda agent.
The Evening Book club meets the first Monday of the month at 7pm. Please feel free to join us! For information about any of our scheduled programs click here.
