Book Club: ‘The Yellow Birds’ July 14

The Yellow Birds: A Novel

The Yellow Birds: A Novel is the current read for the Webster University Book Club.

Webster University Library will host the next Book Club discussion Monday, July 14, discussing The Yellow Birds: A Novel by Kevin Powers, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Library Conference Room.

“The war tried to kill us in the spring.”

With this line, The Yellow Birds opens to a story of young American soldiers trying to survive the war in Iraq.  It’s the first novel by Powers, himself a veteran of the Iraq War.  The book is beautiful, powerful, horrifying and painful and will give us lots to talk about at the next Webster Book Club meeting.

Join us in the Library Conference Room to discuss this novel and how creativity comes out of the darkest events in our history. Everyone is welcome!
