Event Details

CANCELLED. (In-Person) The House of Rust by Khadija Abdalla Bajaber. When Aisha's fisherman father goes missing, she takes to the sea on a skeleton boat to rescue him. Guided by a talking scholar's cat, who sparks her interest in the mysterious House of Rust, she encounters three monsters hidden beneath the waves. All Aisha wants is for things to return to normal. But a showdown with the father of all sharks looms, and at home, things only grow stranger.

The Own Voices Book Discussion reads books by authors of marginalized or under-represented groups who write about their own experiences and perspectives.

Get the book on cloudLibrary or check it out from the library. Interlibrary loan copies of the book are available to Vernon Area Public Library cardholders (while supplies last); registration required.
