Monthly Book Discussion
The Lincoln Public Library hosts a book discussion group that meets on the last Thursday of each month at 6:30PM in the Program Room. All are welcome to attend. On Thursday, October 27th, we will be discussing Orhan’s Inheritance by AlineOhanesian.
Orhan's Inheritance
When Orhan's brilliant and eccentric grandfather, who built a dynasty out of making kilim rugs, is found dead, submerged in a vat of dye, Orhan inherits the decades-old business. But his grandfather has left the family estate to a stranger thousands of miles away, Seda, an aging woman in a retirement home in Los Angeles. Over time, Orhan begins to unearth the story that eighty-seven-year-old Seda so closely guards--a story that, if it's told, has the power to undo the legacy upon which Orhan's family is built and could unravel Orhan's own future. Like Anthony Marra's "A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, " Tea Obreht's "The Tiger's Wife " and Adam Johnson's "The Orphan Master's Son, " Ohanesian's moving debut showcases formidable storytelling talents and powerful truths.
