Clear schedule, full book bag, can’t lose.
Friday, November 3 at AfterWords, it’s Friday Night Writes.
First, see Alicia Elliott in conversation with Mercedes Peters. Alicia’s debut novel, And Then She Fell, is an urgent and unflinching look at inherited trauma, motherhood, and more.
Then, it’s Sean Michaels and Amy Jones in conversation with Laurie Brown. Sean’s latest, Do You Remember Being Born is a timely exploration of art-making and technology, family and belonging. Amy’s new book, Pebble & Dove is a sharp and funny dive into family bonds, mothers and daughters, what we hold onto and let go—and what lies
beneath the surface. Including, literally, a manatee.
Tickets are $10 and doors open at 6:30pm. ASL, wheelchair accessible.
