Books With a Twist Discussion: Exit West

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Deerfield Public Library
Off Site

Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet: sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors that can whisk people far away. As the violence escalates, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through.

*Program will be held at Panera, 1211 Half Day Road, Bannockburn.
