Please join us for a group discussion of Travelers by Helon Habila. Copies of the book will be available for check out at the Customer Service Desk at the end of August. Refreshments will be served.

A Nigerian graduate student who has made his home in America knows what it means to strike out for new shores. When his wife proposes that he accompany her to Berlin, where she has been awarded a prestigious arts fellowship, he has his reservations: “I knew every departure is a death, every return a rebirth. Most changes happen unplanned, and they always leave a scar.”

A startlingly imaginative exploration of the African diaspora in Europe, by one of the most acclaimed international writers. Award-winning author Helon Habila’s new novel Travelers is a life-changing encounter with those who have been uprooted by war or aspiration, fear or hope.

Registration is required.
