'And the Mountains Echoed'

Georgetown Library

'And the Mountains Echoed'

Georgetown Book Club's December Selection

When Abdullah is 10 years old, his impoverished father allows a wealthy couple to adopt his other child, Abdullah's 3-year-old sister Pari. The siblings' separation affects both deeply, shaping who they become and the choices they make in adulthood. 

Abdullah and Pari's experiences lie at the heart of Khaled Hosseini's 2013 novel, And the Mountains Echoed, but their story's themes of family and connection are explored further through the lives of a variety of other characters in the narrative, including the siblings' stepmother and her brother.

Join the Georgetown Book Club as we discuss And the Mountains Echoed on Thursday, Dec. 18 at 7:30 p.m. Copies are currently available at the Georgetown Neighborhood Library, and everyone is welcome!
