Book Club At Upstart Crow Discusses 'Taliban Shuffle' By Kim Barker

Join us on September 17th from 7-8:30pm for a discussion led by the Upstart Crow Book Club on this month's selection, "Taliban Shuffle" by Kim Barker.

"Kim Barker is not your typical, impassive foreign correspondent—she is candid, self-deprecating, laugh-out-loud funny. In "The Taliban Shuffle," Barker offers an insider’s account of the “forgotten war” in Afghanistan and Pakistan, chronicling the years after America’s initial routing of the Taliban, when we failed to finish the job. Swift, funny, and wholly original, "The Taliban Shuffle" unforgettably captures the absurdities and tragedies of life in a war zone."

The club meets on the third Monday of every month. If you would like to join the Upstart Crow Book Club, please send your e-mail address to Membership entitles you to a 25% discount on the title of the month.

You will receive a regular mailing about the club’s selections and a membership card. We will be reading and discussing an interesting cross-section of fiction and nonfiction titles. The discussions will be led by Upstart Crow staff members.
