Classics Book Club–Midnight’s Children

Join us February 28th at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie

Midnight's Children

Saleem Sinai is born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, the very moment of India’s independence. Greeted by fireworks displays, cheering crowds, and Prime Minister Nehru himself, Saleem grows up to learn the ominous consequences of this coincidence. His every act is mirrored and magnified in events that sway the course of national affairs; his health and well-being are inextricably bound to those of his nation; his life is inseparable, at times indistinguishable, from the history of his country. Perhaps most remarkable are the telepathic powers linking him with India’s 1,000 other “midnight’s children,” all born in that initial hour and endowed with magical gifts.

Ask at the desk for a copy of this classic or email baynelibrary@einetwork.net to reserve a copy today! And be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming discussions:
