James Levine, local author and Mayo Clinic physician, will discuss his book, The Blue Notebook, on Wednesday, July 21 at noon at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E. Minneapolis. The book is based on his experience in Mumbai, India where he visited the infamous Mumbai “Street of Cages” where the child prostitutes are kept caged. Levine interviewed their keepers as well as several of the young girls and boys—including one young girl he noticed writing in a notebook. The Blue Notebook is the unforgettable story as imagined by Levine about a precocious teen, who despite literacy and education, is sold into sexual slavery by her father. The Blue Notebook is powerfully told in her voice through the words in her journal where she finds hope, beauty, and humor in the bleakest circumstances. Levine will sign copies of his book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public.
