Discussing Aya: Life in Yop City by Marguerite Abouet
Aya tells the story of its nineteen-year-old heroine, the studious and clear-sighted Aya, her easygoing friends Adjoua and Bintou, and their meddling relatives and neighbors. It’s a breezy and wryly funny account of the desire for joy and freedom, and of the simple pleasures and private troubles of everyday life in Yop City. An unpretentious and gently humorous story of an Africa we rarely see–spirited, hopeful, and resilient.
Join us for our next book club meeting on Tuesday, April 4th at 6:30pm in the Library Board Room. Copies of the book are available for check out from the 2nd floor reference desk.
