Mystery Book Club June Selection
Published on Friday, June 1, 2012 - 8:55am
On Thursday, June 3, we will discuss Finding Nouf by Zoe Ferraris.
In Saudi Arabia, a girl goes missing and a Palestinian man who has worked for her family is asked to investigate. A conservative Muslim and an outsider because of his nationality, class, and large stature, he is wary of the divide between men's and women's worlds as he collaborates with a female Ph.D. employed in the women's section of the state medical examiner's office.
This is a fascinating view into another culture portrayed by well-drawn characters and sense of geographic place.
The Cleveland Park Mystery Book Club meets on the first Thursday of the month, at 6:30 p.m., at Barnes & Noble, 12th and E Streets NW.
