An Evening with Laura Moriarty

Posted In:

Thursday, February 8th 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM Library Auditorium Adult, Teen

Moriarty will talk about her latest novel, the controversial American Heart. Teenager Sarah-Mary Williams of Hannibal, Missouri lives in a United States where Muslim Americans are subject to registries and detainment camps. Sarah-Mary never questions that these new policies are for everyone’s safety until she meets Sadaf, a Muslim fugitive determined to reach freedom in Canada. The Raven Book Store will sell books and Moriarty will sign after her talk.
