Sunday, 5 August from 5:00 - 6:00pm
Bank Square Books and La Grua Center proudly partner to bring internationally bestselling author Jan-Philipp Sendker to Stonington for a reading and signing of his beautiful, haunting novel. This event requires NO ticket and is being held at La Grua Center, 32 Water Street, Stonington.
From Annie Philbrick: "Sendker has written a magical gem of a book, and I have no doubt this will become a bestseller in the USA given the poetical prose, emotional depth and exquisite love story that brings to life the beauty and patience of the people of Burma."
More about the book:
A poignant and inspirational love story set in Burma, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats spans the decades between the 1950s and the present. When a successful New York lawyer suddenly disappears without a trace, neither his wife nor his daughter Julia has any idea where he might be…until they find a love letter he wrote many years ago, to a Burmese woman they have never heard of. Intent on solving the mystery and coming to terms with her father’s past, Julia decides to travel to the village where the woman lived. There she uncovers a tale of unimaginable hardship, resilience, and passion that will reaffirm the reader’s belief in the power of love to move mountains.
