Book Talking

The Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library book club will meet at 7:00 p.m. on
Thursday, June 16 to discuss The Storyteller’s Secret by Sejal Bedani. In the wake of
three miscarriages and the failure of her marriage, Jaya is desperate to assuage her
anguish. She decides to go to India to uncover answers to her family’s past. Intoxicated
by the sights, smells, and sounds she experiences, Jaya becomes an eager student of the
culture. But it is Ravi—her grandmother’s former servant and trusted confidant—who
reveals the resilience, struggles, secret love, and tragic fall of Jaya’s pioneering
grandmother during the British occupation. For more information or to get a copy of the
book, please call 252-527-7066, ext. 133.
