Jhumpa Lahiri’s book, The Lowland is a masterpiece of writing–about two brothers in India during the 1960s when there was extensive anti-government activity. One of the brothers comes to the US but continues to be tied to his Indian family.

Our speaker, Catherine Frerichs will review Jhumpa Lahiris’s book and share some of her own experiences adopting 3 African children and then reconnecting them with their birth mother. The subsequent events that followed that reunion are what tie into Lahiri’s book. Helena Township Community Center, 8751 Helena Road, Alden. Sponsored by Alden District Library and Books ‘n Brie Book Club.
