Thomas University’s Book Club will discuss ‘The Kite Runner’ during its Feb. 17 meeting.
Written by Khaled Hosseini, “The Kite Runner” was a number-one New York Times bestselling debut novel, according to the publisher’s website. The narrative is about the friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father’s domestic worker. The story takes place in Afghanistan and focuses on the power fathers have over their sons. Hosseini was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, in 1965 and moved to The United States in 1980.
Leading the Book Club’s discussion will be Ann Larson. She earned a bachelor’s degree in English from Agnes Scott College and her master’s degree in teaching from Duke University. Larson created many ceremonies and traditions at Brookwood School in Thomasville, where she spent four decades years teaching. At Brookwood, she was named Star Teacher 12 times. Larson serves as the vice president of the Thomasville Entertainment Foundation and as chair of its Education Committee.
The Feb. 17 meeting will take place in Campus Center Classroom on TU’s Forbes Campus at 7 p.m. The Book Club is a part of Thomas University’s Arts for the Community (ACTU).
