Celebrating the publication by Arachne Press of In the Blood by Anna Fodorova and Routes by Rhiya Pau. Anna and Rhiya are both local writers. Anna’s book, In the Blood, is a novel that explores second generation Holocaust survivors, and refugees from the Communist bloc, while Rhiya’s (award winning) book, Routes, uses poetry to explore her Grandparents’ journeys from Kenya, Uganda and India. Despite their differences, the writers and the books have much in common in exploring the refugee experience, political repression, and the erosion of language. Join Anna and Rhiya for a discussion and readings.
