Every other week on The Stacks Podcast we will be discussing The Stacks Book Club (TSBC) picks. We will be diving into conversations about the books, not only discussing the themes and its greater social and cultural context.
April 11th will be our very first TSBC episode, and we will be discussing Exit West by Mohsin Hamid. This book tells the story of two young people exploring a romance as their country dives into unrest. The books made it on many lists of the best books of 2017, including Barak Obama’s favorites.
On April 25th we will discuss Jesmyn Ward’s memoir, Men We Reaped. In this book Ward deals with the death of five young men that were close to her, and what it means to live, and die, as a black man in the rural south.
We do plan on diving deep into these books, please know there will be spoilers. So make sure you read the book before you listen to any TSBC episodes.
I want the conversations to be engaging, and touch on the topics you want to hear about, send over you questions and thoughts about the books. Likewise, I am constantly looking for books to add to TSBC, your input is greatly appreciated. What books do you think deserve a good talking through?
Make sure you’re subscribed to the podcast so you don’t miss a single episode. I look forward to discussing these books with you in April. Happy reading, and I’ll see you in The Stacks.
