Literary Luncheon: Emma Donoghue – Akin
51 Tamal Vista Boulevard
Tickets: $55 (includes meal and signed book)
Noah Selvaggio is a retired chemistry professor and widower living on the Upper West Side. He is days away from his first visit back to Nice since he was a child when he receives a call from social services: Noah is the closest available relative of an eleven-year-old great-nephew he’s never met, who urgently needs someone to look after him. Akin by Emma Donoghue is a funny, heart-wrenching tale of an old man and a boy, born two generations apart, who unpick their painful story and start to write a new one together.
