Little Gems Book Discussion: "Our Riches" by Kaouther Adimi In-Person

In this little gem of a short novel, we learn about Edmond Charlot and Les Vraies Richesses (Our True Wealth), an Algerian bookstore/publishing house/library.  The story of Charlot and his bookstore includes Charlot's discovery of the young Albert Camus in 1937.  The momentous events of this novel also encompass WWII, the 1961 Free Algeria demonstrations in Paris, and a modern-day story in 2017, when a young man is hired to empty the famous bookstore.  Copies of the book are available at the Checkout Desk.
