12/5 | Book Discussion: Snow by Orhan Pamuk

Thursday, December 5, 2013 3:30 p.m.
Community Room, Adamany Undergraduate Library

From Nobel Prize–winning author Orhan Pamuk, the novel Snow paints a fantastic picture of daily life in Kars, a dreamlike town in the mountains of far eastern Turkey. Following an exiled poet who becomes stranded in Kars during a weeklong blizzard, the deeply layered story is an attempt to untangle the town’s history, the importance of poetry, the vicissitudes of belief, and the limits of reason. Humorous and deeply sympathetic, Snow takes readers on a mesmerizing tour of the complex terrain of Turkish belief, politics, and personal expression.

Please join Karen Liston, the Librarian Liaison for Near Eastern Studies at Wayne State University, to discuss this beautifully written and translated book.
