This enthralling story of two families, and two faiths, is set in Turkey at the time of the cataclysm of 1999. It tells of Sinan, whose daughter Irem dreams of escaping the confines of her family and the duties of a devout Muslim woman. She sees in Dylan, an American boy and her upstairs neighbor, the promise of another life. But then a massive earthquake forces Sinan and his family to live as refugees in their own country and leads to a dangerous intimacy with their American neighbors as Irem and Dylan fall in love. When Sinan finds himself entangled in a series of increasingly dangerous decisions, he will be pushed toward a final betrayal that will change everyone’s lives forever. Registration is not required.

We all know how important it is to read to children, but what about writing? Strong communication skills are important throughout life. And writing is fun, too! Teens will be paired up with young budding authors to guide them through the story creation process. Each child will write and illustrate a mini story to take home. This group meets once a month, and a different genre will be explored each month. Parkland Library card required to register. To register visit www.cityofparkland.org/library or call 954-757-4207.
