Gretel Ehrlich with Facing the Wave: A Journey in the Wake of the Tsunami
Feb 19 2013 7:30 pm
| Historic LoDo: Gretel Ehrlich, the author of This Cold Heaven, The Future of Ice, and The Solace of Open Spaces, will discuss and sign her new book Facing the Wave: A Journey in the Wake of the Tsunami (Pantheon). A passionate student of Japanese poetry, theater, and art for much of her life, Ehrlich felt compelled to return to the earthquake-and-tsunami-devastated Tohoku coast to bear witness, listen to survivors, and experience the terror and exhilaration in villages and towns where all shelter and hope seemed lost. In an eloquent narrative that blends strong reportage, poetic observation, and deeply felt reflection, she takes us into the upside-down world of northeastern Japan, where nothing is certain and where the boundaries between living and dying have been erased by water. |
