Ruta Sepetys - Fountains of Silence—at Cleveland Park Library

Upcoming Event
Thursday, October 17, 2019 - 7:00pm

The Fountains of Silence is set in the summer of 1957 in Spain, at the height of a fascist dictatorship. Daniel Matheson, son of an American oil tycoon, joins his parents on a summer trip to Madrid where he hopes to connect with the country of his mother’s birth. Is the Spain that tourists experience a glossy, filtered version? Can Daniel, an aspiring photojournalist, bring to light the atrocities the world has ignored? Once again, internationally acclaimed bestselling author Ruta Sepetys deftly illuminates a lesser known history with her newest novel about the power of love, the repercussions of war, and the reckoning of truth in fascist postwar Spain.

This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.

This event is in partnership with DC Public Library.
