Join us as we discuss "Sparks Like Stars" by Nadia Hashimi. 

The story begins in 1978 in Kabul, Afghanistan with Sitara Zamain, the daughter of a prominent family.  A horrible crime ensues and Sitara is smuggled out of Afghanistan and raised by an American diplomat to become a renowned surgeon.  Thirty years later, Sitara's world is upturned by an elderly Afghan patient leading her on a journey of shadowy memories through a world she loved and lost.

Discussion will be led by the charming and fabulous Diane Grumhaus.  The registration fee includes a hardcover copy of the book and a catered lunch from Towne & Oak.  You won't want to miss this!

“A bold and illuminating story of home - of American and Afghanistan, tragedy and survival.”
—Harper Collins Publishing

“Hashimi's narrative is telenovela good - daring adventures, deadly secrets, family drama, the beloved dead, a politician-in-the-making, true love, and more .”
—Booklist
