The Furrows: An Evening with Namwali Serpell and Isaac Fitzgerald

Event Date: September 30, 2022 8:30 pm

ONE OF THE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2022—Vulture, Esquire, Lit Hub, Electric Lit, BookPage Books & Books was excited to join forces with our indie bookstore partner Elliott Bay Book Company for this special conversation with Namwali Serpell about her new novel which captures the uncanny experience of grief, the way the past breaks over the present like waves in the sea. The Furrows is a bold exploration of memory and mourning that twists unexpectedly into a story of mistaken identity, double consciousness, and the wishful—and sometimes willful—longing for reunion with those we’ve lost.
