Hi, everyone.
 
Years ago, the East Bay Book Club had a discussion on one of Khaled Hsseini's novels. So I thought I'd pass along the following message I received about an event with that author, if you're interested. :-)

Khaled Hosseini at the JCCSF on 6/24 at 7:00 pm       

In Conversation with Judson True

The John & Marcia Goldman Foundation Lecture

Khaled Hosseini (The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns) has made a career out of writing about his native Afghanistan revealing the beauty and agony of this little-known part of the world to millions of readers. In 2006 he was named a goodwill envoy to UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency, and has been providing humanitarian assistance in Afghanistan through The Khaled Hosseini Foundation. His new novel, And the Mountains Echoed, crosses continents from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco, exploring how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations.

“Hosseini gives us a vivid and engaging story that reminds us how long his people have been struggling to triumph over the forces of violence – forces that continue to threaten them even today.”
– New York Times Book Review

“[Love] is the emotion – subterranean, powerful, beautiful, illicit, and infinitely patient – that suffuses the pages.”
– O, The Oprah Magazine

Standard: $40* | Members $35* | Students $15

*A copy of Khaled Hosseini’s new novel, And the Mountains Echoed, is included in Standard and Member ticket prices.
