Description:
 Join us at Maze for our monthly discussion of graphic novels.Copies of each book will be available at the Maze Branch a month before the discussion. Refreshments provided.
This month's discussion is Habibi by Craig Thompson.Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, Habibi tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, by circumstance, and by the love that grows between them. At once contemporary and timeless, Habibi gives us a love story of astounding resonance: a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and, most potently, the magic of storytelling.
