Carol Flank will lead a discussion about Go-Went-Gone by Jenny Erpenbeck, historical fiction about a recently retired professor and widower who became curious about a group of African asylum seekers staging a hunger strike in Alexanderplatz in Berlin, Germany, a true occurrance.

 

“Curiosity turns into compassion and an inner transformation as he visits their shelter, interviews them, and become embroiled in their harrowing fates. Go-Went-Gone is a scathing indictment of Western policy toward the European refugee crisis, but also a touching portrait of a man who finds he has more in common with the Africans than he realizes.” (from the back cover).
