Spend fall with Katrina

Dave Eggers' Zeitoun is a national bestseller
and a winner of numerous awards. 
 
The Chicago Sun-Times called it "transformative...
[a story about] the trials of a good man
who believes in God and happens to have a canoe." 

Read this non-fiction novel: 
get a new understanding
of Hurricane Katrina,
Bush's "war on terror"
and being Muslim in America.

Book Club will meet Tuesday,
October 29, from 3-4, in BH 2243
(Trammel Conference Room).

New York Times Sunday Book Review 
of Zeitoun is here.

Copies are available for loan
(contact schesne@nwacc.edu)
and in the bookstore.
