Free Library of Philadelphia - Tiphanie Yanique - Land of Love and Drowning - Judith Frank - All I Love and Know (Thursday, July 24 at 7:30pm)
Land of love and drowning Tiphanie Yanique In the early 1900s, the Virgin Islands are transferred from Danish to American rule, and an important ship sinks into the Caribbean Sea, orphaning two sisters and their half-brother, each armed with an otherworldy gift that will either sink or save them. Chronicling three generations of the family, Land of love and drowning is a uniquely imagined novel, set against the emergence of Saint Thomas into the modern world, imbued with the lush rhythms of the Virgin Islands. Tiphanie Yanique is the author of the story collection How to Escape from a Leper Colony and a 2010 Rona Jaffe Writers’ Award winner. All I love and know Judith Frank Judith Frank is the author of the acclaimed novel Crybaby Butch, winner of the Astraea Foundation’s Emerging Lesbian Writers Fund Prize and a Lambda Literary Award.

Frank has been a resident at Yaddo and has published fiction in The Massachusetts Review, Other Voices, and Best Lesbian Love Stories 2005, among other publications.
