Virtual Book Club: The Foreign Student
Join lively online discussions with fellow book lovers via the Facebook group CLP Virtual Book Club to discuss The Foreign Student by Susan Choi.
“Choi blends unlikely elements into a resonant story that immerses the reader in the times, places, and lives of her characters as only the best fiction can. In the small college town of Sewannee, Tennessee, in 1955, a feisty southern belle, Katherine Monroe, meets a Korean student, but their pasts stand in the way of their mutual attraction. In prose that is alternately spare and lush, Choi constructs a plot that only gradually reveals the horrors the Korean student has endured, at the same time raising the possibility of a happy future.”
Copies of this book are always available on Hoopla.
