#96 – The Map of Salt and Stars by Zehn Joukhadar

On this episode we discuss our March 2020 book club pick The Map of Salt and Stars by Zeyn Joukhadar, a novel about two girls on parallel journeys, one a Syrian-American refugee on a journey for safety after her home is shelled in the opening days of the Syrian Civil War, and one a girl posing as a boy to become an apprentice to a legendary cartographer on an epic journey to see the world.
