Bulldog Book Club 2/2 and 2/8: A Thousand Splendid Suns

January 30, 2011 – 3:04 PM

Read the second novel by Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner: A Thousand Splendid Suns. Then come discuss it with English Professor Fran Teague and a UGA Librarian.

“Hosseini’s story. . . rings true as a universal story about victims of cruelty and those who lack the most fundamental of human rights. . . . Hosseini’s work is uplifting, enlightening, universal. The author’s love for his characters and for his country is palpable. In the end, A Thousand Splendid Suns is a love letter to a country and to a people. It is a celebration of endurance and survival in the face of unspeakable tragedy. This is a love song to anyone who has ever had a broken heart and to anyone who has ever felt powerless and yet still dares to dream. And yes, Hosseini has done it again.” —Fort Worth Star-Telegram
