Let's read together! Join your friends, family, and fellow Yearlong Reading Challenge participants at the Boston Public Library as we discuss the October Community Read for adults: "Dumba Chora" by Chandreyee Lahiri, this year's One City, One Story. Waltham author Lahiri explores universal themes of human trust and connection through the story of newlyweds Shekhar and Sutapa, as they spend the night on a boat stuck in the Delta of the Ganges. The discussion will be moderated by a librarian and will take place on Zoom. You must register at least one day in advance of the program in order to receive the Zoom link.
You can download a copy of "Dumba Chora" in English, Spanish, or Chinese from the One City, One Story website, or pick up a physical copy in English from your local Boston Public Library branch.
You do not need to be participating in the Reading Together challenge in order to take part in this book group, but we urge you to join! You can learn about the different monthly challenges, get recommendations for books to read, and find other ways to connect with your reading community at our website. Reading is more fun when we're reading together!
