Bank Square Books presents an author discussion and book signing with Adam Braver, the author of the new book The Disappeared. This event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.
About the Book
A novel of two strangers swept up in the aftermath of two politicized acts of violence. The Disappeared traces a pair of survivors: a woman whose husband is missing in a San Bernardino-type of attack, and a man who believes his sister was an unidentified victim of the '93 World Trade Center bombing. With a remarkable mix of nuance and momentum, Braver portrays their post-trauma experience in the face of relentless public feedback.
