MAPLEWOOD, NJ – Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, will be speaking at Maplewood Middle School on Saturday, September 21. Words Bookstore won a nationwide contest to host the author by creating an amazing window display, dsigned by Meghan Keane.
The event was originally slated to be held in the store, but demand has been so strong that it has been moved to the Middle School.
Hosseini is touring in support of his new bestselling book, “And The Mountains Echoed.” Anderson McKean describes the book as, "a seamlessly woven tale of sisters, brothers, mothers, and fathers, and the unbreakable bonds between them. The story of each character individually is compelling, but they are interconnected so beautifully that they burst with emotion."
Priority seating for the event may be obtained by purchasing a copy of the new book from Words Bookstore by July 31 (either in person or online at wordsbookstore.com.
