Betsy Bonner presents The Book of Atlantis Black: The Search for a Sister Gone Missing
In conversation with Christopher Castellani

Betsy Bonner, author of Round Lake and former director of the 92Y Unterberg Poetry Center, joins Greenlight in a virtual book talk for her memoir, The Book of Atlantis Black. A young woman is found dead on the floor of a Tijuana hotel room. An ID in a nearby purse reads “Atlantis Black.” The police report states that the body does not seem to match the identification, yet the body is quickly cremated and the case is considered closed. So begins Betsy Bonner’s search for her sister, Atlantis, and the unraveling of the mysterious final months before Atlantis’s disappearance, alleged overdose, and death. In this haunting memoir and piercing true crime account, Bonner must decide how far she will go to understand a sister who, like the mythical island she renamed herself for, might prove impossible to find. Christopher Castellani, critically acclaimed author and artistic director of Grub Street, joins Bonner in conversation at this virtual book talk!
