Khaled Hosseini's beloved book The Kite Runner was published in 2003 and spent two years on the New York Times bestseller list. It's also one of NYPL's 125 Books We Love. A rich story of friendship, fathers and sons, and finding your way in the world, it has become a modern classic. Adapted for the stage by Matthew Spangler, The Kite Runner opens next week in a limited Broadway run at the Hayes Theater.

Whether you are discovering the story for the first time or revisiting an old favorite, the book is available—without waiting—on NYPL's e-reader app, SimplyE.
