A book group met at the Bowie Branch of the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System to discuss Khaled Hosseini’s book The Kite Runner, published by Riverhead Books. Mr. Hosseini wrote about the lives of two boys growing up together in Afghanistan in the early 1970s: one the privileged son of a wealthy businessman, the other the son of that businessman’s servant. The book explored the cultural and religious differences that divided the country and explains how the political and cultural landscape of the country has changed since coming under Taliban rule. close
