Téa Obreht & Marie-Helene Bertino

IN-STORE EVENT:
Tuesday, March 19, 7:30pm
Téa Obreht presents The Morningside
In conversation with Marie-Helene Bertino

Internationally bestselling novelist Téa Obreht (The Tiger's Wife, Inland) returns to Greenlight for the launch of her long-awaited new novel, The Morningside! After being expelled from their ancestral home in a not-so-distant-future, Silvia and her mother finally settle at The Morningside, a crumbling luxury tower in a place called Island City where Silvia’s aunt Ena serves as the superintendent. Silvia feels unmoored while her mother has been so diligently secretive about their family's past, and because the once-vibrant city she lives in is now half-underwater. But Ena willingly gives the young girl glimpses into the folktales of her demolished homeland. Enchanted by Ena’s stories, Silvia begins seeing the world with magical possibilities. Startling, inventive, and profoundly moving, The Morningside is a novel about the stories we tell—and the stories we refuse to tell—to make sense of where we came from and who we hope we might become. Téa discusses her work with fellow author Marie-Helene Bertino, along with a reading and book signing.
