One Author, One Kirkwood is a yearly community read for the people throughout our St. Louis community. Funding is provided by the Edward Chase Garvey Memorial Foundation.
This year's author is Diana Abu-Jaber. Diana Abu-Jaber was born in Syracuse, New York to an American mother and a Jordanian father. When she was seven, her family moved to Jordan for two years, and she has lived between the US and Jordan ever since. The struggle to make sense of this sort of hybrid life, or “in-betweenness,” permeates Abu-Jaber’s fiction. The event will be a Q&A style interview with book signing after.
