Book Discussion Monday!

Bridging Cultures Book Discussion: In the Country of Men

Don’t miss this exciting book discussion, led by Virginia Tech Professor Steven Salaita, author of six books and numerous articles. 10/14, 6:30pm, Natural Science Center. Open to the public; refreshments provided.

The truth couldn’t be kept away, it was cunning, sly-natured, seeping through at its own indifferent pace.

In Hisham Matar’s debut novel, a Libyan boy must come to terms with difficult truths about Libya, loyalty, and truth when his father disappears. On the surface a story of the violence and absurdity of life during the rule of Muammar al-Qaddafi, In the Country of Men describes the politics of childhood more than the politics of nations. Just as the plot brilliantly unfolds in unpredictable ways, we are catapulted forward to the next decade. We are left to reflect on the ties that bind us all—the universal embarrassments and frustrations of childhood, the challenge of constructing meaning from memory, and the presence of unavoidable truths.

This book is part of Brown Library’s newest special collection, the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys. Included in this award is a collection of 25 books and three films centered around Islamic art, literature, history, politics, current events, and religion, as well as a one-year subscription to the Oxford Islamic Studies Online database. The books and films are available to be checked out from the Circulation desk on the top floor of the library.
