New book: Orhan Pamuk's Snow

Orhan Pamuk's Snow (call # 894 P36) is one of our new books. Originally written in Turkish, it was translated by Maureen Freely, Snow tells the story of a poet caught up in a blizzard in the town of Kars in the mountains of eastern Turkey. We received Snow as part of the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys grant. Along with the 24 other books in the collection, it's available for check-out on the New Book shelf on Plough Library's main floor. New books can be checked out for 2 weeks.

You can also listen to the NPR Morning Edition segment about Snow, or read an excerpt.

The Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys is a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities, conducted in cooperation with the American Library Association. Support was provided by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional support for the arts and media components was provided by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
