Mason’s early morning book club and breakfast! For September we’re reading The Storyteller of Marrakesh by Joydeep Roy-Bhattacharya.

Each year, the storyteller, Hassan, gathers listeners to the city square to share their recollections of a young, foreign couple who mysteriously disappeared years earlier. As various witnesses describe their encounters with the couple, their tales overlapping, confirming, and contradicting each othe, Hassan hopes to light upon details that will explain what happened to them, and to absolve his own brother, who is in prison for their disappearance.
