Anca Szilágyi Presents DAUGHTERS OF THE AIR

    02/27/2018 - 7:00pm

    This event takes place at our Brooklyn location.

    WORD is delighted to host Anca Szilágyi for her debut novel Daughters of the Air. 

    About the Book:

    Tatiana “Pluta” Spektor was a mostly happy, if awkward, young girl—until her sociologist father was disappeared during Argentina’s Dirty War. Sent a world away by her grieving mother to attend boarding school outside New York City, Pluta wrestles alone with the unresolved tragedy and at last runs away: to thestreets of Brooklyn in 1980, where she figuratively—and literally—spreads her wings. Told with haunting fabulist imagery by debut novelist Anca L. Szilágyi, this searing tale of love, loss, estrangement, and coming of age is an unflinching exploration of the personal devastation wrought by political repression.

    About the Author:
