2017’s One Book, One San Diego Selection.

  KPBS and San Diego Public Library are proud to present The Sandcastle Girls by New York Times bestselling novelist Chris Bohjalian.

The Sandcastle Girls is a multi-generational tale that spans nearly 100 years.  It is initially set in Syria during World War I and focuses on the Armenian Genocide. “These days it is very important for me to tell people that I am the grandson of two Middle Eastern immigrants,” Bohjalian said. “We are a nation of refugees and immigrants. The novel is set in Aleppo – yes, that Aleppo that has broken all of our hearts the last five years – and the city as it appears in the novel exists now only in romance and memory.”
