Book Talk: A Map of the World (With All Faults)
November 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Local author Edward Weingold will read from his new historical novel, A Map of the World (With All Faults). A bloodstained map published in the very first atlas of the world (1570) comes up for sale at a San Francisco auction house in 2016. The novel charts the journey of the map through WWII and its impact on all the owners from its creation to the adult daughter of the little girl who was hidden from the Nazis in 1944. With character-driven twists, the story traces how religious/political intolerance rears its familiar head. The event is free and open to all.
