This month we will be reading "The Mountains Sing" by Nguyen Phan Que Mai

Visual The Mountains Sing 1

The Mountains Sing" tells an enveloping, multigenerational tale of the Tran family, set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War. Tran Diệu Lan, who was born in 1920, was forced to flee her family farm with her six children during the Land Reform as the Communist government rose in the North. Years later in Hanoi, her young granddaughter, Hương, comes of age as her parents and uncles head off down the Ho Chí Minh Trail to fight in a conflict that tore apart not just her beloved country, but also her family.

Vivid, gripping, and steeped in the language and traditions of Vietnam, The Mountains Sing brings to life the human costs of this conflict from the point of view of the Vietnamese people themselves, while showing us the true power of kindness and hope (Algonquin Books).

We hope you will join us to discuss this remarkable book.
