Exit West by Mohsin Hamid is the March selection for Saratoga Reads First Editions Club. It’s about two young lovers, Nadia and Saeed, navigating early adulthood: they go to their jobs, they sneak into each other’s apartments, they text each other and play records, and they fall in love. All the while, their war-torn city — an unnamed location in the Middle East — crumbles around them. They’ve begun fearing for their survival when they hear rumors of magical doors that take people to faraway places, and they must consider whether taking one might lead to a better, safer life.
Books & Brews focuses on what 20 and 30-somethings are reading today. Adults of all ages are welcome to attend. Copies of the book may be obtained on the shelf at the library, or by placing holds on the online public catalog.
