HIAS Book and Film Club: December 2022

December 9, 2022
12:00pm ET - 1:00pm ET

In honor of International Human Rights Day, join us for a facilitated session of the HIAS Book and Film Club to discuss the Booker-longlisted novel An Island by Karen Jennings.

An Island follows Samuel, a lighthouse keeper who has lived alone on a small, unnamed African island where the bodies of refugees wash ashore – until one of them survives the seas. In the presence of this stranger, Samuel begins to consider his own past and what it costs to have, and lose, a home.

This will be an interactive discussion, so please read or listen to the book before the meeting. The novel is available from your local library or its publisher and other retailers here.

Advance registration required. Please RSVP below.
