In the Shadow of the Banyan

Book Readers’ Discussion Group

Monday, December 14, 2015 – 7:00pm — Room 9

We will be discussing In the Shadow of the Banyan by Vaddey Ratner.  The novel, a PEN Hemingway Award finalist,  tells the story of seven-year-old Raami.  Her family’s world of carefully guarded royal privilege is swept up in the chaos of revolution and forced exodus as the Khmer Rouge attempts to strip Cambodians of individual identity.  Raami clings to the mythical legends and poems of her culture.   Reviews of this book praise its “hauntingly beautiful prose imbued with the richness of old Cambodian lore.”

Please join us for what promises to be a lively discussion!  (Even if you haven’t read the book.)
