Laura Van Den Berg - The Third Hotel — in conversation with Maud Casey

Upcoming Event
Monday, August 13, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Van den Berg’s second novel is set in Havana where the recently widowed Clare is attending the Festival of New Latin American Cinema. Her husband had been a film professor, and after she attends a movie he’d especially wanted to see, she finds him standing outside. As she pursues what can only be a ghost, Clare witnesses strange, even impossible occurrences. Reality becomes a mélange of memories, dreams, and hallucinations. Yet certain inescapable truths about her marriage lurk within this shadow play. Writing with uncanny emotional power, van den Berg, author of the award-winning story collection The Isle of Youth and the novel Find Me, has produced an urgent and visceral portrait of loss and deception. Van den Berg will be in conversation with Maud Casey, author of The Art of Mystery.
