Join the SU Book Club as we read and discuss Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2017.  We will discuss this book in four sections. 

For this meeting, read and prepare to talk about Parts Five and Six for the last section.

To learn a little about Klara and the Sun read below:

“What stays with you in ‘Klara and the Sun’ is the haunting narrative voice—a genuinely innocent, egoless perspective on the strange behavior of humans obsessed and wounded by power, status, and fear.” —Booker Prize committee 

Here is the story of Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, who, from her place in the store, watches carefully the behavior of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass on the street outside. She remains hopeful that a customer will soon choose her. Klara and the Sun is a thrilling book that offers a look at our changing world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator, and one that explores the fundamental question: what does it mean to love?
