Our meeting will be held online using the videoconferencing app Zoom. For more information, including the link to join the meeting, please email info@sahswm.org.

Winner of the August Prize, Sweden’s most prestigious literary honor, Everything I Don’t Remember is “compelling… In this painful novel about youthful optimism gone hopelessly wrong, Khemiri dramatizes such immigration-related issues as failures in elder care, unemployment and dead-end jobs, drug abuse, and racial prejudice.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
