Aminatta Forna - The Hired Man ♦

Thursday, October 17, 2013 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
In her third novel, Forna, the Glasgow-born, London-based writer of Sierra Leonean descent, takes her signature themes out of Africa, exploring how violence shapes individuals and their culture in post-Yugoslavia Croatia. When a British woman visits coastal Gost for the summer, she enlists the help of a local man to restore her house, unaware of its role in the 1990s conflict.
