Please join us for a wonderful conversation with author Sarah Blake about her latest novel, The Guest Book, a book described by the Washington Post as "monumental," a sweeping family drama of secrets and silence that crosses three generations but is anchored by a private island off the coast of Maine. With periods set in the thirties, just before World War II; in the late fifties, just before the Civil Rights Movement; and in present day, it is very much of our time as it dares to approach the issues of racism and anti-Semitism and asks us to consider our own role in history. Sarah also talks about her challenges and rewards in writing this weighty novel. Don't miss this thought-provoking episode with a glorious writer.
