Multicultural Reading Series - Laurel County Public Library - Event Calendar


Multicultural Reading Series


Reading multicultural fiction allows us to discover and better understand the diversities amonth the world's societies. More importantly, it teaches us that in many ways, we're really not all that different from one another.

Learn about three very different cultures during three specific time periods as we read and discuss some popular multicultural fiction titles.

We'll start in a turn of the 20th century Caribbean seaport and explore a unique love triangle. The, we'll journey to 1960s Afghanistan and delve into the lives of women in a suppressed society. From there, we'll move on to 19th century China and discuss female friendships and Chinese history.

The schedule of discussions is as follows:

Tuesday, May 28th--Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, with discussion led by Dr. Jeremy Paden from Transylvania University

Tuesday, June 25th--A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, with discussion led by Kathy Fish from University of the Cumberlands

Tuesday, July 23rd--Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See, with discussion led by Marianne Worthington from University of the Cumberlands

To facilitate meaningful discussion, each session's attendance will be limited to 30 people. We strongly encourage participation in all three sessions.

Free books, compliments of Friends of the Laurel County Public Library, will be given to the first 20 people who register to attend each session.

Registration for each session will open at 8:00 am on the 3rd day of that month, i.e., registration for the June 25th session will open on June 3rd.
