Zeitoun by Dave Eggers

A One Book One Springfield/Book Club Discussion

Wednesday, May 16th, from 7 till 9 PM

STHS English teachers Andy Dippell and BethAnn Olesen will lead a discussion of Dave Eggers' best seller, Zeitoun.

Zeitoun is the true story of a family caught between America's two biggest policy disasters: the war on terror and the response to Hurricane Katrina.

Timothy Egan, of The New York Times Book Review, said of Zeitoun, "Eggers’ tone is pitch-perfect—suspense blended with just enough information to stoke reader outrage. . . It’s the stuff of great narrative nonfiction."

The New Orleans Times-Picayune called Zeitoun, “[a] heartfelt book, so fierce in its fury, so beautiful in its richly nuanced, compassionate telling of an American tragedy, and finally, so sweetly, stubbornly hopeful.”

Community members are welcome to our discussion. Refreshments will be served.
