Scheherazade's The Thousand and One Nights meets Alan Gratz's Refugee in this important debut novel from a Syrian-American author, Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar. A 12th century fable about an apprentice mapmaker is interwoven with a modern-day Syrian refugee searching for home, as the plot follows both girls through the Middle East, encountering tremendous dangers and immense acts of kindness. A must-read for teens and adults, this is an incredibly moving and lushly described story of family and friends, meaningful culture, changing landscapes, and universal hope. A staff pick, a Signed First Editions Club pick, and a Forever Young: YA for Adults book club pick.

This event is part of the QRB Supper Club Series, where we hold a 10-person dinner with the author prior to the event at nearby North Hills restaurant, Aladdin's. For $30, receive a copy of the The Map of Salt and Stars, enjoy dinner at 5 pm (appetizer, main, and dessert), and receive priority seating and priority signing line placement at the in-store 7 pm event.
