Another Round of Book Club
From Sherri - "You might recognize Saira Shah's name because her film, Beneath the Veil, aired on CNN a few years ago. The film did a superb job illuminating the difficulties women have when living under the Taliban rule. In this book, Shah returns to Afghanistan to learn more about the myths and stories she grew up with. Her father, we learn, is a Sufi and a storyteller who filled his family with a love for the country of Afghanistan and its people. This is a very readable book and should be enjoyed by all. Thanks to one of our UT family members for suggesting it - I really enjoyed it!"
From Bridget - "I actually just started to read this book (thanks, Sherri, for passing on your copy to me) and although I'm not very far along, I'd love to hear what others who are reading or have read this book have to say. Comment below - just please don't tell me the ending!"
