Book Discussion Group: The Bookseller of Kabul by Asne Seierstad
Monday, March 2, 2015 at 6:45 pm, FCPL
This story tells of the daily life of a middle-class family of Sultan Khan, a bookseller in Kabul. Sultan has lived through several repressive regimes, all of which burned and censored his books which he supplied in defiance of the Communist Party and the Taliban. Imprisoned by the Communists, Sultan stood by as the illiterate Taliban soldiers burned his books in the street. Now with the Taliban gone, Sultan is free to pursue his business and his dreams of turning his large collection of books into a library for Afghanistan. Books are available at the Circulation Desk. All are welcome!
