The Lizard Cage by Karen Connelly (RANDOM HOUSE)

Tuesday • July 5 • 1pm

Feed your body and your mind. Bring your lunch and join us on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm to talk books at the Book Bites Book Club.

Beautifully written and set in an exotic land, Karen Connelly's debut novel, The Lizard Cage, is a celebration of the resilience of the human spirit. Teza once electrified the people of Burma with his protest songs against the dictatorship. Arrested by the Burmese secret police in the days of mass protest, he is seven years into a twenty-year sentence in solitary confinement. But despite his isolation, Teza finds meaning and has a profound influence on the people around him—most notably on Little Brother, a twelve-year-old orphan who's never known a world outside the prison walls.
