Book Launch: Akil Kumarasamy presents Meet Us by the Roaring Sea 
In Conversation with Ly Tran 

Greenlight is thrilled to welcome back acclaimed, award-winning author Akil Kumarasamy for the launch of her newest novel, Meet Us by the Roaring Sea—a remarkable, genre-bending exploration of memory, technology, friendship, love, consciousness, and the costs of caring for others in an age when we are so often lost in the swamps of our own minds. In the near future, a young woman finds her mother’s body starfished on the kitchen floor in Queens and sets on a journey through language, archives, artificial intelligence, and TV for a way back into herself. Along the way, the arrival of a childhood friend, a stranger, and an unusual AI project will force her to question her own moral compass and sense of goodness. How involved are we in the suffering of others? What does real compassion look like? How do you make a better world? Kumarasamy is joined by acclaimed author Ly Tran (House of Sticks) for a reading, discussion, Q&A, and signing of this soaring and urgent new novel.
