Book Launch: Irina Reyn presents Mother Country
In conversation with Paul W. Morris
Greenlight hosts award-winning author Irina Reyn for the launch of her new book, Mother Country, in which she explores what it means to be a mother in a world where you can't be with your child. Ukrainian immigrant Nadia internalizes notions of "union" all around her, but the one reunion she has been waiting six years for—with her beloved daughter—is being eternally delayed by the Department of Homeland Security. When Nadia finds out that her daughter has lost access to the medicine she needs to survive, she takes matters into her own hands. Bestselling author Anthony Marra praises, “Mother Country is a beautifully envisioned, morally urgent novel set at the disputed borderlands of a divided family and country. Irina Reyn is a superb chronicler of America, Ukraine, and all points between, resulting in a book of uncommon power and purpose." Reyn discusses Mother Country in conversation with Paul W. Morris, Vice President of the Authors Guild and Director of House of SpeakEasy.
