SOLD OUT: Isabel Allende - A Long Petal of the Sea—at Sixth & I

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, January 21, 2020 - 7:00pm

From the New York Times bestselling author of The House of the Spirits, this epic novel spanning decades and crossing continents follows two young people as they flee the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War in search of a place to call home. In the late 1930s, civil war grips Spain. When General Franco and his Fascists succeed in overthrowing the government, hundreds of thousands are forced to flee in a treacherous journey over the mountains to the French border. Among them is Roser, a pregnant young widow, who finds her life intertwined with that of Victor Dalmau, an army doctor and the brother of her deceased love. In order to survive, the two must unite in a marriage neither of them desires. A masterful work of historical fiction about hope, exile, and belonging, A Long Petal of the Sea shows Isabel Allende at the height of her powers.

Allende will be in conversation with David Epstein, investigative reporter at ProPublica and bestselling author of Range and The Sports Gene.

This event does not include a public signing. All books will be pre-signed.
