Book Discussion: The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri

Thursday, February 6, 2014
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Join the Library Book Club for a discussion of The Namesake, Jhumpa Lahiri's novel about a Bengali immigrant couple from Calcutta and their American-born son. The Namesake is a story about the American immigrant experience: Old-World parents' conflicted feelings of ambition for the future and nostalgia for the past, and the way their children are expected to embrace the new homeland while feeling a connection to a country where they have never lived.

The Namesake is a National Endowment for the Arts Big Read selection. An excellent guide to the novel is available on the Big Read website here.
