Isabel Allende in Brooklyn, with Aminatta Forna
New York Times and worldwide bestselling dazzling storyteller (Associated Press) Isabel Allende returns with a sweeping novel about three very different people who are brought together in a mesmerizing story that journeys from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil.In conversation with award-winning author Aminatta Forna.

In the Midst of Winter begins with a minor traffic accidentwhich becomes the catalyst for an unexpected and moving love story between two people who thought they were deep into the winter of their lives.

Exploring the timely issues of human rights and the plight of immigrants and refugees, the book recalls Allendes landmark novel The House of the Spirits in the way it embraces the cause of humanity, and it does so with passion, humor, and wisdom that transcend politics (Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post). In the Midst of Winter will stay with you long after you turn the final page.

Tickets are $25 and come with (1) hardcover copy of In the Midst of Winter for pickup at the program.
