The current Book Club selection is The Map of Salt and Stars by Syrian-American author Zeyn Joukhadar (also found under the name Jennifer Joukhadar). This novel tells of two very different journeys along the same route in different centuries. Nour is fleeing the violence in modern Syria as she and her family migrate across seven countries. Rawiya, living in the twelfth century, has disguised herself as a boy to be an apprentice to the mapmaker al-Idrisi and their journey follows the same route that would later be followed by Nour and her family. Theirs are parallel stories about navigation and finding home. We will be discussing this when we meet again on Monday, January 13, at 7:00 p.m. at the Red Lotus Asian Grill. We always welcome all interested readers and would love to have you join us.
