The SandCastle Girls, the 2017-2018 One Book, One San Diego Title

Cover of the Sand Castle Girls and Author PictureKPBS and San Diego Public Library are proud to present The Sandcastle Girls by New York Times bestselling novelist Chris Bohjalian.


The Sandcastle Girls is a multi-generational tale that spans nearly 100 years. It is initially set in Syria during World War I and focuses on the Armenian Genocide. “These days it is very important for me to tell people that I am the grandson of two Middle Eastern immigrants,” Bohjalian said. “We are a nation of refugees and immigrants. The novel is set in Aleppo - yes, that Aleppo that has broken all of our hearts the last five years - and the city as it appears in the novel exists now only in romance and memory.”

Library Location

The Rancho Bernardo Library is located at 17110 Bernardo Center Drive, San Diego  92128, across from the Souplantation Restaurant.

In the case of good books, the point is not how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.
