Book launch: Tiphanie Yanique presents Land of Love and Drowning
A Greenlight First Editions Club Selection
Refreshments and music
Greenlight hosted the launch of Tiphanie Yanique’s debut work, the short story collection How to Escape from a Leper Colony, in 2010. The bookstore is proud to host Yanique to launch her new novel, Land of Love and Drowning, which confirms the promise of her vibrant debut collection, and was chosen as a Greenlight First Editions Club selection. Chronicling three generations of the Bradshaw family in the Virgin Islands, the novel weaves together stories of magic and lust, unknown connections and hidden mysteries, family legacies, and an island world undergoing historical changes. Join us for a reading and launch party, including a playlist of Caribbean music and a reception featuring wine and Virgin Islands rum.
