Julia Phillips - Disappearing Earth

Julia Phillips makes a special appearance at the Library to discuss her bestselling novel, Disappearing Earth, a finalist for the National Book Award.

One afternoon, on the shoreline of the Kamchatka peninsula at the northeastern edge of Russia, two sisters go missing. In the ensuing weeks, then months, the police investigation turns up nothing. Echoes of the disappearance reverberate across a tightly woven community, with the fear and loss felt most deeply among its women.

Taking us through a year in Kamchatka, Disappearing Earth enters with astonishing emotional acuity the worlds of a cast of richly drawn characters, all connected by the crime: a witness, a neighbor, a detective, a mother.  This powerful novel brings us to a new understanding of the intricate bonds of family and community, in a Russia unlike any we have seen before.

Books will be for sale and the event will conclude with a book signing.
