What can happen when a U.S. citizen is caught in the violence of another country?
Join us for a look at Guatemala, as written about in books by two local authors. Shirley & Rudy Nelson, authors of The Risk of Returning, and Jacqueline Sheehan, author of The Center of the World, explore various aspects of the Guatemalan Civil War in their recent novels. In both cases the characters are fictional and the setting is real, Guatemala’s recent civil war, but the fictional choices by the authors differ radically. The authors will read briefly, and discuss their choices and decisions in building the two stories.
Books will be available for purchase and signing.
