Lecture: A Thousand Splendid Suns

Lecture: A Thousand Splendid Suns

When: Wednesday, October 26, 2011 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Where: Hodson Auditorium, Rosenstock Hall


 Khaled Hosseini, author of “A Thousand Splendid Suns,” will give a lecture and book signing of this highly acclaimed bestselling novel. 

The novel recounts the experiences and emotions of two Afghani women whose lives become entangled with the history of recent wars in their country. Despite the bleak outlook of their lives and the devastating effects of war, gender conflicts and poverty on their country, the girls’ story offers the promise of hope and happiness. 

Hosseini’s visit and lecture is part of The Hanson Lecture Series, established by the late Barbara Esmer Hanson, an alumna of Hood College’s class of 1945, and her husband, the late Robert D. Hanson, a 1939 graduate of Gettysburg College, through The Foundation for Enhancing Communities. Hood and Gettysburg colleges are beneficiaries of the fund, which provides for speakers of national and international prominence to visit the campuses.  

This is a ticketed event and seating is limited to the Hood College community.  

More information about tickets will be available on the website three weeks before the event.
