Books & Books and the Miami Book Fair are thrilled to present an in-person evening with authors, Geoffrey Philp & Adrian Castro, to discuss Philp’s book Archipelagos (Peepal Tree Press Ltd., $17.95).
About the Book:
“Archipelagos is a book that gets under the diseased skin of history’s oppressors, and the disconcerting quiet fallout of disaster. It doesn’t sound like fun but the effect on the reader is incredibly liberating, putting them in an omniscient point of view that brings within them an understanding of the world’s ebb and flow, history, damage and healing. This may well be the book that Geoffrey Philp is remembered by. Get it.” — Roger Robinson
