Event Details

Acclaimed historical novelist Annamaria Alfieri’s most recent book, The Idol of Mombasa, is the second in a series of mysteries set in British East Africa in the early twentieth century. It is the sequel to Strange Gods, to which The Richmond Times-Dispatch attributed “the flair of Isak Dinesen and Beryl Markham, the cunning of Agatha Christie and Elspeth Huxley and the moral sensibility of our times…” Alfieri will discuss her work, and the genre of historical fiction, with journalist Eric Weiner, the author, most recently, of The Geography of Genius and a former correspondent for NPR. A book signing will follow and coffee will be served, courtesy of our generous friends at Kefa Café. Sponsored by Friends of the Library, Silver Spring Chapter
