catalog record for item
Read and discuss Broken Verses by Kamila Shamsie. Fourteen years ago, famous Pakistani activist Samina Akram disappeared. Two years earlier, her lover, Pakistan's greatest poet, was beaten to death by government thugs. In present-day Karachi, her daughter Aasmaani has just discovered a letter in the couple's private code-a letter that could only have been written recently. Merging the personal with the political, Broken Verses is at once a sharp, thrilling journey through modern-day Pakistan, a carefully coded mystery, and an intimate mother-daughter story that asks how we forgive a mother who leaves.

This discussion will be led by Dr. Chris Taylor of Drew University. Multiple copies of the book are available near the Circulation Desk. This discussion series is made possible by a grant from the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities. The programs are free and all adults are welcome to attend. Please register online or by calling 908-204-3031 ext. 116.
