KhaledHosseiniInternationally bestselling author Khaled Hosseini (The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns) has worked for six years on his new novel, And the Mountains Echoed—and this time, the writer called “a storyteller of dizzying power” by Evening Standard adds a whole new dimension to his work. Says Hosseini: “My earlier novels were, at heart, tales of fatherhood and motherhood. My new novel is a multigenerational family story as well, this time revolving around brothers and sisters, and the ways in which they love, wound, betray, honor and sacrifice for each other.” Presented by Seattle Public Library and Elliott Bay Book Company.
Admission is free; no tickets required. Doors open at 6:15 pm. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.
