Categories: Book Club/DiscussionThis book club approaches American identity as an evolving and ongoing conversation, using fiction and non-fiction to explore questions of identity, assimilation, language, cuisine, generational change and other aspects of life in the United States. September's selection is Behind the Lens by Jeaneé Sacken. Request a physical copy here, or request the e-book or e-audio book on the Libby library app. Sign into the app with your library card. Milwaukee-area writer Sacken's novel tells the story of seasoned photojournalist Annie Hawkins Green, who, eight years ago barely survived a Taliban ambush that left her military escort dead and a young Afghan girl dying in her arms. Since then, she has managed to suppress her memories of that brutal day, until she returns to Afghanistan to teach a photography workshop a the secondary school for girls run by her expat best friend.
