Thursday, January 9 from 7 - 8:30 PM, Book discussion of The End, by Salvatore Scibona, part of the Winter Book Discussion Series of award-winning young fiction writers, led by Phil Burnham, George Mason University.The authors in this series are all Americans, and all under age 45, and they’ve each won at least one major book award, and all books are debut novels. Each book will be discussed independently (you need not have attended any of the other discussions to attend this session.). About The End: “Cast against the racial, spiritual, and moral tension that has given rise to modern America, this first novel exhumes
the secrets lurking in the darkened crevices of the soul of our country. Inventive, explosive, and revelatory, The End introduces Salvatore Scibona as an important new voice in American fiction.” At the Cleveland
Park Library, Connecticut Avenue and Macomb Street NW.
