Book Club Meeting: The Fishermen

Join us for an interesting book club discussion on The Fishermen, by Chigozie Obioma:

Told from the point of view of nine-year-old Benjamin, the youngest of four brothers, this is the Cain and Abel-esque story of an unforgettable childhood in 1990s Nigeria. When their father has to travel to a distant city for work, the brothers take advantage of his extended absence to skip school and go fishing. At the forbidden nearby river, they encounter a madman who predicts that one of the brothers will kill another. What happens next is an almost mythic event whose impact--both tragic and redemptive--will transcend the lives and imaginations of the book's characters and readers.
