      The Other Americans by Laila Lalami

      Late one spring night in California, Driss Guerraoui - father, husband, business owner, Moroccan immigrant - is hit and killed by a speeding car. The aftermath of his death brings together a diverse cast of characters - deeply divided by race, religion, and class – who, as they each tell their stories in their own voice, have connections among them emerge. Driss's family confronts its secrets, a town faces its hypocrisies, and love - messy and unpredictable - is born. Timely, riveting, and unforgettable, The Other Americans is at once a family saga, a murder mystery, and a love story informed by the treacherous fault lines of American culture.

      Moderated by Robyn Miller.
