Tuesday, May 31, 7:30 PM Author Anna North presents America Pacifica
Brooklyn-based author (and Greenlight customer!) Anna North graduated from the Iowa Writers Workshop in 2009, having received a Teaching-Writing Fellowship and a Michener/Copernicus Society Fellowship, and is currently a staff writer for Jezebel. Her debut novel, set in a time after North America has succumbed to a second ice age, is the story of a girl living on the island of America Pacifica, one of the last habitable places on earth, and what she discovers about her family and the history of the island. Join us for a great evening's reading with a local author!
The best gift poetry can give is a clear view of the world through another's heart. Some give you a clear view through many hearts and, with that, many truths. This knockout debut gifts us again and again with the chance to discover the languages of legend, legacy, and the war of and for home. What can be learned here about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict rivals what I've learned from nearly any American newspaper. "What kind of woman goes searching and searching?" So begins the book. To search and search with ferocity and grace.
