Ruth Ozeki will discuss A Tale for the Time Being, shortlisted for the 2013 Booker Prize. In Tokyo, sixteen-year-old Nao has decided there’s only one escape from her unhappy life. But before she ends it all, Nao plans to document the life of her great grandmother, a Buddhist nun. Across the Pacific, is Ruth, a novelist who discovers a collection of artifacts washed ashore in a lunchbox - possible debris from the 2011 tsunami. As the mystery unfolds, Ruth is pulled into the past, into Nao’s drama, and forward into her own future. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Light refreshments.
