This year, U of G’s annual common reading project – Gryphons Read – celebrates its sixth iteration. This year’s novel is Home of the Floating Lily, by Bangladeshi-Canadian author and lawyer, Silmy Abdullah. This collection of eight short stories follows the lives of everyday people as they navigate the complexities of migration, displacement, love, friendship and familial conflict.

Gryphons Read is a campus-wide book club that brings the University community together over a selected novel and encourages meaningful conversations about the book. Lead by Student Experience, individual residence and off-campus book clubs are organized and coordinated with discussion group facilitators and a tailored discussion guide with input from the author herself. The workbook outlines ways readers can further connect with themes in the novel.

On September 26, Silmy Abdullah will visit campus for a public talk about her book. To register, visit
