Announcing Community Reads @ Home

Hello everyone!  

We are super excited to announce the launch of a new Community Reads @ Home program in partnership with our fellow book nerds at the Menlo Park Library. We invite you to join us in reading one book all together so we can share our reading experience with each other and have lots of engaging, enriching, and inspiring conversations over coming days and weeks.

The staff at Kepler's and Menlo Park Library put a great deal of consideration into selecting a book that will provide our readers with a sense of hope and an opportunity for lively discussions. We are delighted to announce that our inaugural Community Reads book will be Exit West by Mohsin Hamid.

Exit West chronicles the lives of two young lovers from an unnamed country at the onset of civil war. Nadia and Saeed flee their ancestral home through a series of special portals taking them across the world, and eventually to Marin County right here in the bay area. When you open this book, you'll experience something that only great books are able to achieve - greater understanding of other people's lives and how their personal stories of human struggle illuminate our own existence.

Exit West was New York Times Best Book of the Year (2017), winner of the L.A. Times Book Prize for Fiction, and the Aspen Words Literary Prize. It has been a perennial staff favorite at Kepler’s and at the Menlo Park Library. Barack Obama called it one of the best books he read in 2017. It is being adapted into a feature film for Netflix.

We invite you get your book now and learn more about this program and what we are planning, including a capstone virtual event with the author Mohsin Hamid.
