Etruscan Press and KSU NEOMFA will be conducting a focus group to discuss Etruscan author Jeff Talarigo’s forthcoming novel, “In the Cemetery of the Orange Trees.” These linked stories of an American’s experience in Gaza expose the seven-decade long Palestinian diaspora in a disquieting allegory of the clash between the occupied and the occupier. In a place where political posturing, bloody war, journalistic witness, and even patient negotiation have yielded so little understanding, we enter the cemetery of the orange trees, where urchins kite dead birds, and goats utter wisdom, and camels and donkeys huddle together, and merchandise magically passes underground through the tunnels of Gaza.
Please join us on Tuesday, March 21, from 6:30 – 8:00 in Satterfield 220.
Email Erin Lawrence at email@example.com to R.S.V.P.
The Etruscan Press and its authors actively participate in readings, education workshops, conferences, book fairs, and more.
