WestportREADS | events

The WestportREADS program is dedicated to strengthening the community through the shared experience of a book or an author.

 

The Westport Library’s WestportREADS selection for January/February 2019 is Exit West by Mohsin Hamid, an award-winning novel that follows two refugees who, against all odds, find life and love on the run. Forced out of their country by civil war, this moving story celebrates love, courage, family and the fierceness of the human spirit. The book was a finalist for the Man Booker Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award and named a top ten best book of 2017 by the New York Times. Companion books will also be available for kids and teens.

Pick up a copy of the book to read and share. It is also available as an ebook or e-audiobook here.

To request a discussion leader for your group, contact Kathleen Malloy at kmalloy [at] westportlibrary [dot] org.
