NHM Virtual Book Club – Rain in the Valley

October 16, 2020 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am

Join The National Hellenic Museum Virtual Book Club, facilitated by NHM’s Resident Scholar Dr. Katherine Kelaidis & Manager of Special Events Cairo Dye.  Each month the NHM Book Club will choose a book that is either inspired by the Hellenic legacy or by a Greek American author (and sometimes both!). Then we will gather to discuss the book on Zoom!
On October 15th we will be discussing Rain in the Valley by Helen Papinkolas

Helen Papinkolas was one of the first (and most important)  historians of the Greek American experience. Rain in the Valley is a fictionalized account of her important work. The novel follows three generations of the Demas family as they struggle and thrive among the vibrant Greek community of the Inner-Mountain West. It is a story that finds universal resonance in its daring specificity.  Rain in the Valley will change how you think about the Greek American experience and the “American Dream” forever.

Book Club meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7pm CDT
Our upcoming Book Club selections:
October 15th – Rain in the Valley by Helen Papanikolas
November 19th – The Odyssey by Homer, as translated by Emily Wilson
December 17th – Calypso by David Sedaris
