Brooklyn by the Book: Orhan Pamuk
Dweck Center at the Brooklyn Public Library, Central Library
Brooklyn, NY
Share this event:

From Nobel Prize-winning author Orhan Pamuk comes A Strangeness in My Mind, a panoramic novel centered around a poor street vendor and his fantasies of a better life. Every night, Mevlut Karata wanders the streets of Istanbul, selling boza and dreaming of riches and fame. But fate is never in his favor, and, after mistakenly eloping with the wrong girl, Mevlut moves from job to job, raising a family and marvelling at the transformations of the 20th century. Told through a variety of perspectives, A Strangeness in My Mind is a loving, hopeful tale from one of the world's most distinguished storytellers. NOTE: Please enter through Dweck Center entrance on Eastern Parkway. There will be no entry through the main library doors.

The Brooklyn by the Book series is made possible in part with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
