Discussion of between worlds: Essays on culture and belonging
Please join us for a relaxed discussion of Between Worlds: Essays on Culture and Belonging by Marilyn Gardner. The book is available on Amazon and via other book sellers.
Here’s the Amazon promotion of the book:
“In the hall of an old Inn by the ocean is a sign that reads ‘Home is Where Our Story Begins.” But if home is where our story begins, what happens when we can’t go back?” Marilyn Gardner was raised in Pakistan and went on to raise her own five children in Pakistan and Egypt before moving to small town New England. Between Worlds will resonate with those who have lived outside of their passport country, as well as those who have not. These essays explore the rootlessness and grief as well as the unexpected moments of humor and joy that are a part of living between two worlds. Between Worlds charts a journey between the cultures of East and West, the comfort of being surrounded by loved ones and familiar places, and the loneliness of not belonging. “Every one of us has been at some point between two worlds, be they faith and loss of faith, joy and sorrow, birth and death. Between Worlds is a luminous guide for connecting—and healing—worlds.”
