Annie Bloom’s welcomes Oakland author Hilary Zaid, whose debut novel is Paper Is White. Zaid will be in conversation with Portland poet Willa Schneberg.
Paper Is White:
When Holocaust oral historian Ellen Margolis and her girlfriend decide to get married, Ellen’s search for a blessing leads her into a complicated relationship with a wily survivor of the Kaunas Ghetto, a woman in search of a blessing of her own. Set in ebullient, 1990s Dot-com era San Francisco, Paper is White is a novel about the gravitational pull of the past and the words we must find to make ourselves whole.
