BOOKIES Club: The Namesake

Monday December 16, 2019
1:00 PM until 2:30 PM


           Book Selection: The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri

Open to: Adults

The Namesake follows the Ganguli family from their tradition-bound life in Calcutta to their new life in Cambridge Massachusetts.
It also follows the growth of their son, Gogol, named for a Russian writer by his Indian parents in memory of a catastrophe years before.
With penetrating insight, Lahiri reveals not only the defining power of the names and expectations bestowed upon us by our parents, but also
the means by which we slowly, sometimes painfully, come to define ourselves.
