Read Around the World: North Korea

read-around-the-world

Wednesday, Oct. 4, 7 pm – 8 pm, Main Library – This month’s book is The Accusation by Bandi. The seven stories that make up The Accusation give voice to people living under the most bizarre and horrifying of dictatorships. The book is a vivid depiction of life in a closed-off one-party state, and also a hopeful testament to the humanity and rich internal life that persists even in such inhumane conditions.  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.
