Read and Reflect - Behind the Beautiful Forevers
Behind the Beautiful Forevers profiles everyday life in the settlement of Annawadi as experienced by a Muslim teen, an ambitious rural mother, and a young scrap metal thief, illuminating how their efforts to build better lives are challenged by religious, caste, and economic tensions. Katherine Boo creates an intimate, unforgettable portrait of India's urban poor. Read and Reflect book discussions feature a new non-fiction title each month. Books are available at the Dole Branch Library one month before the discussion. Library book discussions are open to all who are committed to reading and talking about books.
