Join Bel Canto Books owner and head booknerd Jhoanna
for our Book of the Month (BOTM) online book club.
We’ve chosen Mohsin Hamid’s “Exit West” - one of our favorite novels
of all time - as our final read of the year.
Called “an extraordinarily sympathetic, breathtakingly original book
at the time we most desperately need it” by @nytimes, “Exit West” opens
in an unnamed Middle Eastern country on the brink of war, as two university students meet and begin to fall in love. A book about migration, hope
and how we survive the seemingly unsurvivable, it offers a realistic look
at refugee life, tinged with magical realism.

Our November book is "Our History Is The Future: Standing Rock
Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition
of Indigenous Resistance" by Nick Estes.
About the book:
"In 2016, a small protest encampment at the Standing Rock Reservation
in North Dakota, initially established to block construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline, grew to be the largest Indigenous protest movement in
the twenty-first century. In Our History Is the Future, Nick Estes traces
traditions of Indigenous resistance that led to the #NoDAPL movement.
Our History Is the Future is at once a work of history, a manifesto,
and an intergenerational story of resistance."
