Vermont Reads 2015: Haroun and the Sea of Stories

Haroun and the Sea of Stories coverThis funny and touching story of a father and son is, at its heart, a reflection on the importance of stories, imagination, and creativity.

In Haroun, Rushdie has created his own fantastic folktale, modern yet steeped in the narrative traditions of world cultures. The story features storyteller Rashid Khalifa and his young son, Haroun. A great upheaval in their family causes Rashid to lose his voice, his stories, and possibly, the family’s livelihood.
