In Search of New Lands

From Massachusetts to the Middle East to colonial Jamaica, these books take readers around the world as their characters search for a way to live life on their own terms. Join debut novelists Zaina Arafat (You Exist Too Much) and Maisy Card (These Ghosts Are Family) and award-winning author Lily King (Writers & Lovers) for a conversation about the challenges and identities our homelands force upon us. Moderated by Alex Gilvarry, author of Eastman Was Here.
