Event Details

The Happy Hour Book Group will meet at Rubaiyat on Wed. March 14th at 5:15 p.m. to discuss Mohsin Hamid’s “Exit West.” In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet—fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, they begin to hear whispers about doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As the violence escalates, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through.
