Book of the Week: Khaled Hosseini’s And the Mountains Echoed

The beloved author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns takes readers from his home country of Afghanistan, to Paris, San Francisco and the Greek Islands in this multi-generational epic. As in his previous books, Hosseini’s storytelling illuminates the culture and history of Afghanistan, while engaging readers with the compelling journeys of his characters. Coinciding with the books release, Penguin Canada has launched The Echo Project (, an evolving digital interactive companion that will  include page-by-page reader interpretations done with video, illustrations, quotes, photographs, poems and more (including submissions by Hosseini himself).
