Join us for a lively discussion of the book by Pulitzer Prize winning author Jhumpa Lahiri that “deftly demonstrates how the familiar struggles between new and old, assimilation and cultural preservation, striving toward the future and longing for the past, play out in one particular set of foreign-born parents and their American-born children.” (from NEA Big Read) This program is free and open to the public.
