KRISTA BREMER & ELLEN BASS Reading & Signing
Malaprop's Bookstore & Cafe, Sunday, November 9 at 3pm
Chapel Hill author and associate editor of The Sun magazine, Krista Bremer joins us to discuss her memoir, My accidental jihad. A love story about her very real and imperfect relationship with her Muslim husband, My accidental jihad has been called “a bold piece of writing (and thinking) by an incredibly brave woman,” by Elizabeth Gilbert (The Signature of All Things). Ellen Bass is the author of five collections of poetry. Of her latest, Like a Beggar, Tony Hoagland says, “Observant, curious, honest, not fancy but beautifully measured and crafted, Ellen Bass’s poems take on the whole cloth–she looks at wasps and bad habits and infidelity and old Jewish ladies, tomato fungus and the million other phenomena of our average lives.”
