This month we will be discussing Sara Farizan's If You Could Be Mine:

Seventeen-year-old Sahar has been in love with her best friend, Nasrin, since they were six. They’ve shared stolen kisses and romantic promises. But Iran is a dangerous place for two girls in love—Sahar and Nasrin could be beaten, imprisoned, even executed if their relationship came to light.
So they carry on in secret—until Nasrin’s parents announce that they’ve arranged for her marriage. Nasrin tries to persuade Sahar that they can go on as they have been, only now with new comforts provided by the decent, well-to-do doctor Nasrin will marry. But Sahar dreams of loving Nasrin exclusively—and openly.

Thursday Evening Book Discussions
Fall Series: Survival StoriesThe human capacity for survival is amazing. Much literature is devoted to survival stories…men, women and even children beating the odds to make it through impossible situations against improbable odds. Sometimes people act with nobility, sometimes they do not. This fall we explore several tales of survival, both fiction and non-fiction.

Tonight's selection: Lord of the Flies by William Golding
The classic novel of survival on a desert island. If you read this in school, read it again for a different perspective; this story of a group of boys who must choose humanity or living as animals is as relevant today as it was when published in 1954.

Thursday Evening Book Discussions
Spring Series: Africa -- Colonialism & BeyondThe history of Africa has been overshadowed over the last 200 years by the European colonization that dominated all parts of the continent. This is a huge story, and one that is often not very well understood by Americans. We take a very brief look at the experience of Africa from the perspective of colonialism and its effect on blacks and whites.

Toight's selection: Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller
This is an intensely moving journey through a white African girl's childhood. Fuller was brought up in Africa during the Rhodesian civil war (1971-1979), a world where children over five learned how to load a rifle, clean all the guns in the house, and shoot-to-kill. The narrative focuses on the wartime relationships between blacks and whites through a child's watchful eyes.

Toight's selection: King Leopold’s Ghost by Adam Hochschild
This selection provides a vivid account of an episode in the modern history of Africa that was the epitome of tragedy; the looting of the Congo and the destruction of its peoples by King Leopold of the Belgians. The story is told through a succession of biographical sketches of the principal villains and heroes.

Toight's selection: The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
In 1959 an American missionary and his family move to the Belgian Congo. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is an epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

Toight's selection: ~~Things Fall Apart by Chinue Achebe
One of Achebe's many achievements in this acclaimed novel is his unsentimental rendering of Nigerian tribal life before and after the coming of colonialism. Achebe sketches a world in which violence, war, and suffering exist, but are balanced by a strong sense of tradition, ritual, and social coherence.
