And as time runs out, Maye's judgment will have momentous consequences for them both.

The Stranger and The Meursault Investigation by Albert Camus and Kamel Daoud (VINTAGE) (OTHER PRESS)

Friday • April 8 • 6:30pm

U District store

Join us on the second Friday of every month for an engaging evening of literary discussion with Seattle's own beloved librarian, Nancy Pearl.

Get your fix for philosophical reflection at this double feature discussion. First published in 1946, Albert Camus' The Stranger follows an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach, exploring what Camus termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd." In the award-winning 2015 novel The Meursault Investigation, Kamel Daoud reimagines the events in The Stranger from the perspective of the brother of the man killed, offering a modern take on the classic and a profound meditation on Arab identity and colonialism.
