Non-Fiction Book Club at Central
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the Non-Fiction Book Club. This month's selection is Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo.

In Behind the Beautiful Forevers, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human through the dramatic story of families striving toward a better life in Annawadi, a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport. As India starts to prosper, the residents of Annawadi are electric with hope. Abdul, an enterprising teenager, sees "a fortune beyond counting" in the recyclable garbage that richer people throw away. Meanwhile Asha, a woman of formidable ambition, has identified a shadier route to the middle class. With a little luck, her beautiful daughter, Annawadi's "most-everything girl," might become its first female college graduate. And even the poorest children, like the young thief Kalu, feel themselves inching closer to their dreams. But then Abdul is falsely accused in a shocking tragedy; terror and global recession rock the city; and suppressed tensions over religion, caste, sex, power, and economic envy turn brutal. With intelligence, humour, and deep insight into what connects people to one another in an era of tumultuous change, Behind the Beautiful Forevers, based on years of uncompromising reporting, carries the reader headlong into one of the twenty-first century's hidden worlds—and into the hearts of families impossible to forget.

All of our non-fiction book club selections are available in alternative formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternative format, please speak with the book club coordinator.

Registration is required. To register, click on the green button below, call 905-668-6531 x 2020 or email askreference@whitbylibrary.on.ca.
