Amnesty International Local Chapter Book ClubSee more

The Amnesty International Northumberland book club focuses on books, fiction, non-fiction and even humour, that have a human rights theme.  We currently meet via Zoom at 7pm the fourth Monday of every month.  Once conditions allow we will be meeting physically.  For more information about us contact derek.blackadder@sympatico.ca.

On 26 July we will be discussing Exit West, a 2017 novel by Pakistani author Mohsin Hamid. It is Hamid's fourth novel. The main themes of the novel are emigration and refugee problems.  The novel is about a young couple, Saeed and Nadia, who live in an unnamed city undergoing civil war and finally have to flee, using a system of magical doors, which lead to different locations around the globe.
 
The book was named by The New York Times as one of the 10 Best Books of 2017.  It was also shortlisted for 2019 International IMPAC Dublin Award.
