Pilgrim Women's Book Club

Join us for our February Book Club meeting to discuss “A Place for Us: A Novel” by Farhen Mirza. Named One of the Best Books of 2018 by: Washington Post • NPR • People • Refinery29 • Real Simple • Buzzfeed!

As an Indian wedding gathers a family back together, parents Rafiq and Layla must reckon with the choices their children have made. There is Hadia: their headstrong, eldest daughter, whose marriage is a match of love and not tradition. Huda, the middle child, determined to follow in her sister’s footsteps. And lastly, their estranged son, Amar, who returns to the family fold for the first time in three years to take his place as brother of the bride. What secrets and betrayals have caused this close-knit family to fracture? Can Amar find his way back to the people who know and love him best?

A Place for Us is a book for our times: an astonishingly tender-hearted novel of identity and belonging, and a resonant portrait of what it means to be an American family today. Hope you can join us for what promises to be a lively discussion! For more information contact gloria.co@pilgrimoakpark.org
