Eden Mills Writers' Festival presents their first Book of the Month event of 2022! Award-winning author Myriam J.A. Chancy joins host Bee Quammie in conversation about her new novel, What Storm, What Thunder.
At the end of a long, sweltering day, as markets and businesses begin to close for the evening, an earthquake of 7.0 magnitude shakes the capital of Haiti, Port-au-Prince.
Chancy masterfully charts the inner lives of the characters affected by the disaster. Brilliantly crafted, fiercely imagined, and deeply haunting, What Storm, What Thunder is a singular, stunning record, a reckoning of the heartbreaking trauma of disaster, and——at the same time——an unforgettable testimony to the tenacity of the human spirit.
This event includes closed captioning.
