The Heart of a ChildSaturday, May 4 | 3:15 PM - 4:30 PM
Brower Center - Tamalpais Room
Come hear three writers who, like children themselves, will break your heart then put it back together again. Rene Denfeld is a former chief investigator at a public defender’s office and foster adoptive parent; her novel “The Child Finder” depicts an investigator using child-savvy skills to find a missing girl. Duanwad Pimwana, the first female Thai novelist translated into English, has written a poignant novel in stories, “Bright,” about a boy abandoned in a village. Hanne Ørstavik won international acclaim for “Love,” which tells of a mother and young son who each are locked in their loneliness; the tragedy is all the more keen when rendered in such gorgeous prose.
