Fall for the Book—Haunted Past

October 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Three writers imagine how memory can reshape

and haunt their current-day lives:

 

In M. Soledad Caballero’s poetry collection I Was a Bell, she explores the ripples from the primal moments in her childhood, split between countries, languages, and violence. Ari Honarvar’s novel A Girl Called Rumi follows Kimia, a spiritual advisor in California, facing the mysticism of her haunted past in war-torn Iran as her return home coincides with the Green Uprising. In Jan Beatty’s memoirAmerican Bastard, erasure of identity, the ghosts of blood, and the myth of the “chosen baby” in adoption collide with her search for her birth parents.
