The BPL Virtual Book Club selection for March is A Burning by Megha Majumdar. The book follows three characters in India who find their lives entangled in the wake of a catastrophe.

The BPL Virtual Book Club selection for March is A Burning by Megha Majumdar. A debut novel that was a 2020 National Book Award Longlist honoree, A Burning follows the lives of three unforgettable characters in contemporary India. After making a careless comment on Facebook, Jivan, a Muslim girl who aspires to make it out of poverty and into the middle class, is accused of executing a terrorist attack on a train. PT Sir is an opportunistic gym teacher who hitches his aspirations to a right-wing political party, and finds that his own ascent becomes linked to Jivan's fall. Lovely—an irresistible outcast whose exuberant voice and dreams of glory fill the novel with warmth and hope and humor—has the alibi that can set Jivan free, but it will cost her everything she holds dear. Majumdar's book touches on complex themes such as class, fate, corruption, justice, and what it feels like to face profound obstacles and yet nurture big dreams in a country spinning toward extremism. Join Debbie and Beth for an engaging discussion on Zoom.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
