Please join us via Zoom for a discussion and some trivia of Shadow Spinner by Susan Fletcher. Shadow Spinner is a gripping histrical fiction book that puts its own spin on 1oo1 Arabian Nights.
Every night, Shahrazad begins a story. And every morning, the Sultan lets her live another day—providing the story is interesting enough to capture his attention. After almost one thousand nights, Shahrazad is running out of tales. And that is how Marjan’s story begins.
It falls to Marjan to help Shahrazad find new stories—ones the Sultan has never heard before. To do that, Marjan is forced to undertake a dangerous and forbidden mission: sneak from the harem and travel the city, coaxing strangers to tell her stories and bringing them back to Shahrazad. But as she searches the city, a wonderful thing happens. Marjan, who had been just a quiet spinner of tales when the story began, becomes the center of a story more surprising than she ever imagined.
