Book of the Month - A Game for Swallows

A Game for Swallows was written by Zeina Abirached. It's an autobiography told in graphic novel format. The story takes place in Lebanon in 1984. Zeina's parents have gone across town to visit Zeina's grandmother, and haven't yet returned home. Zeina and her brother are worried. Soon, neighbors from their apartment building start making their way downstairs to stay with the children. They include Anhala, who has worked for the same family for 3 generations; Chucri, the son of the building's caretaker; and Ernest, whose twin brother Victor was killed by a sniper. Everyone does their best to keep the children occupied. Ernest recites Cyrano de Bergerac in its entirety, and Anhala has the kids help her make sfouf, a cake. To find out how it ends, come to the library!
