Conversations Worth Having: A Dinner Adventure
November 4, 2019 @ 6:30 pm PST$19.13 – $44.00
About the Event
Join us for another engaging evening at the next installment in our Conversations Worth Having series, with Grace Talusan, author of The Body Papers and winner of The Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing.
Don’t miss this thought-provoking Adventure at King’s Fish House, where Grace will share the stories from her debut memoir, which is an extraordinary portrait of the artist as a survivor. Grace overcame a personal history fraught with racism, sexual trauma, mental illness, and cancer… Moving and eloquent, Grace’s book is a testament not only to one woman’s fierce will to live, but also the healing power of speaking the unspeakable.
Your Adventure includes a pre-fixe dinner, soft drink, tax, gratuity, author presentation, book signing, and the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversation with the author and other engaged readers in an intimate setting.
