It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime…
Amir and Hassan are two unlikely friends living in Kabul in the 1970s. The story follows the struggles in their lives, as friends from two different ethnic groups and social classes, during a volatile time in Afghanistan. Khaled Hosseini’s 2003 challenged novel The Kite Runner is a story of loyalty, forgiveness, loss, friendship, and family.
Registration required. General registration opens May 14; registration with a free book opens June 9.
As part of Delaware Humanities’ “Prohibited” initiative, the books for the 2021 Summer Book Clubs will be previously banned or frequently challenged books. This summer will focus on modern literature.
Everyone who attends all three Summer Book Club sessions will be entered into a raffle to win a Banned Books pouch
from Out of Print!
Registration will begin four weeks before each session. There will be five free copies of the book for those who register for one, while supplies last. Please note if you claim a free book and do not attend the discussion session, you will not be allowed to claim a free book in the future. Books will only be mailed to Delaware addresses.
