On November 26th at 12:00 we invite you to our America House Kyiv book club meeting!
For November, we’re reading The Kite Runner. The book tells the story of a friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul, Afghanistan. Though they were raised in the same household, Amir and Hassan grow up in different worlds: Amir is the son of a wealthy man, and Hassan is the son of Amir’s father’s servant. Their lives and their fates reflect the tragedy of the world around them. Although Amir escapes for a new life in America, he cannot leave the memory of Hassan behind him.
Remember to bring your passport or driver's license.
