Book considers ‘Do Not Say We Have Nothing’

The Second Saturday Book Discussion Group talks about “Do Not Say We Have Nothing” by Madeleine Thien at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 11, at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.

To participate, simply read the book and attend the discussion; no reservations are needed, and drop-ins are welcome. For a full schedule of 2020 Book Group selections, visit www.nols.org/book-discussion-groups.

Thien takes readers inside an extended family in China, showing the lives of two successive generations: those who lived through Mao’s Cultural Revolution and their children, who became the students protesting in Tiananmen Square.

Copies of this title are available in various formats including regular print, large print, audiobook on CD and downloadable eBook, available at www.nols.org. A limited number of copies of each book discussion selection are available at the Library the month prior to each meeting.

For more information, email to discover@nols.org or call 360-683-1161.
