Khaled Hosseini | And the Mountains Echoed
Changing Hands Bookstore, Sunday, June 9 at 12:30pm
12:30PM SUNDAY, JUNE 9 Khaled Hosseini: And the Mountains Echoed International bestseller Khaled Hosseini, the Afghani author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns (both of which spent nearly a year on the bestseller lists), presents And the Mountains Echoed, his first novel in six years.
In a multigenerational novel revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families love, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul, to Paris, to San Francisco, to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.
EVENT DETAILS TICKET (admits two) is free when you purchase And the Mountains Echoed from Changing Hands Bookstore. Letter groups (printed on top of ticket) will be called at 11:30am to fill seats and designated standing room. If available, seating and standing room opens to those without tickets at 12:15pm. Space cannot be guaranteed for late arrivals. Booksigning line forms by assigned letter group after the presentation. Those without tickets may get their books signed after ticket-holders, if time allows. Event details may be subject to unannounced changes. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Khaled Hosseini was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, in 1965. The son of a diplomat, Hosseini's family relocated to Paris in 1976, and was later granted political asylum in the United States. Hosseini studied at Santa Clara University and the University of California-San Diego Medical School, and he was a practicing physician from 1996 to 2004. In 2006, after The Kite Runner was already a bestseller, he was named a goodwill envoy to UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency. He also founded The Khaled Hosseini Foundation to provide humanitarian assistance to people in Afghanistan. The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns were both international bestsellers, selling 38 million copies, spending nearly a year on bestseller lists, and published in more than forty countries. The Kite Runner was adapted to film in 2007, and nominated for Golden Globes for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Original Score.
