    Family & Alumni Weekend Synergy Book Discussion, UNCW's Common Reading Experience

    Little Bee by Chris Cleave

    Refreshments will be served

    About the book:

    Little Bee, a young Nigerian refugee, has just been released from the British immigration detention center where she has been held under horrific conditions for the past two years, after narrowly escaping a traumatic fate in her homeland of Nigeria. Alone in a foreign country, without a family member, friend, or pound to call her own, she seeks out the only English person she knows. Sarah is a posh young mother and magazine editor with whom Little Bee shares a dark and tumultuous past.

    They first met on a beach in Nigeria, where Sarah was vacationing with her husband in an effort to save their marriage after an affair, and their brief encounter has haunted each woman for two years. Now together, they face a disturbing past and an uncertain future with the help of Sarah’s four-year-old son, who refuses to take off his Batman costume. A sense of humor and an unflinching moral compass allow each woman, and the reader, to believe that even in the face of unspeakable odds, humanity can prevail.

    Join us Saturday, September 24, 2016, 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. in the Sherman Hayes Gallery on Randall Library's first floor.
