Main Library – Explore thought-provoking fiction from around the globe. Our Read Around the World book club meets once a month to discuss titles from foreign locales. All titles are available from Maplewood Library or through the BCCLS consortium. No registration needed.
This month’s book is Dust by Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor. Dust portrays the violent history of Kenya in the second half of the 20th century. The story moves between the lamentation of a single family and the corruption of national politics, swirling around one young man’s death to create a vortex of grief that draws in generations of deceit and Kenya’s tumultuous modern history.
