HIAS Book and Film Club — October 2021

12:00pm ET
United States

Event Description

Join us for a facilitated session of the HIAS Book and Film Club on Friday, October 22 from 12pm-1pm ET to discuss the book How to Pronounce Knife by Souvankham Thammavongsa.

This collection of essays pays special attention to the stories of the displaced that despite arriving safely elsewhere still don’t feel welcomed or settled. These stories have much to teach us about the challenges newly-arrived Afghans will face in the United States and elsewhere and how to ensure we see them – their grief, their efforts, and their dreams.

This will be an interactive discussion, so you are encouraged to read or listen to the book before the meeting. The book is available via its publisher here, and elsewhere.

Advance registration required.
