The Contemporary Fiction Book Group will be reading and discussing The Rent Collector by Camron Wright, on April 9, 2019. from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Field Library Gallery.

The Rent Collector is set in a municipal dump in Cambodia where the two main characters struggle on a daily basis to keep themselves and their sick daughter alive.  When they discover that the hated rent collector for the dump is actually able to read, they manage to persuade her to teach them, and the result is eye opening for both the rent collector and her tenants.
