Christine Evans: NADIA (In Conversation With Marion Winik)

Event Details

Bird in Hand Coffee & Books
11 East 33rd Street, Baltimore, MD 21218
Friday, October 6th, 2023
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

We’re delighted to present an evening with Christine Evans and Marion Winik, who will discuss Evans’ compelling new novel, NADIA! Moving between the competing perspectives of two survivors of the 1990s Balkan Wars who have escaped to London, only to discover that the war has followed them there.

The novel takes us to the recent past of a war that broke apart a European country and that presciently foreshadowed the rise of ethno-nationalism in the West. Tense, suspenseful, and mordantly funny, NADIA tracks the complex ways in which a past marked by political violence can shadow and disrupt the present.

We look forward to having you over to Bird in Hand for this pertinent, fascinating conversation.
