"And the Mountains Echoed" by Khaled Hosseini

And the Mountains Echoed Join us to discuss And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini.

And the Mountains Echoed begins simply with a father telling a story to his two children, followed by a series of interlinking stories of how we love, how we take care of each other, and the effect our actions have on the future. From Kabul to Paris, the story expands, becoming gradually more complex and compelling with each page.

And the Mountains Echoed is Khaled Hosseini's third novel, No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns.

Pick up a copy today and discover what the Daily Beast calls "not just a well spun tale, but an accomplishment of the most elusive of literary challenges—the humanization of a war ravaged population in the eyes of the very people complicit in their ruin."

The Francis A. Gregory Adult Book Club meets the fourth Thursday of each month. Copies are available for check-out.
