EdwidgeDanticatBOOKThe best-selling author of Brother, I’m Dying and Breath, Eyes, Memory returns to Town Hall with Claire of the Sea Light, a new work of fiction that takes readers deep into the intertwined lives of a seaside town in Haiti where a little girl, the daughter of a fisherman, has gone missing. That little girl is Claire Limyè Lanmè, and in telling the story of Claire’s disappearance, celebrated Haitian-American writer Edwidge Danticat explores what it means to be a parent, child, neighbor, lover, and friend, while revealing the mysterious connections we share with the natural world and with one another, amid the magic and heartbreak of ordinary life. 

Presented by: Town Hall as part of the Arts & Culture series with University Book Store. Sponsored by City Arts.
