The Submission by Amy Waldman

Participate in the Kalamazoo's Reading Together program and join us for a discussion of The Submission by Amy Waldman.

Reimagining 9/11 and its aftermath, Amy Waldman's provocative novel begins with a resonant scene: a jury
gathers in Manhattan to choose a memorial for the victims of a devastating Islamic terrorist attack. After tense deliberations, they select the Garden, which features trees both living and made from salvaged steel. Then the jury discovers that the anonymous architect who created the winning design is an American Muslim.

Raising profound questions about the impact of 9/11 on the American psyche, The Submission explores the essence of grief and healing.

Call (269)-349-7775 ext. 3166 to register in advance. Free and open to the public.
