Novelist Natalie Bakopoulos will be the featured author at Writers in the Library on Monday, October 15, at 7 p.m. in UT's Hodges Library Auditorium. The reading is free and open to the public.
The Green Shore, published in 2012 by Simon & Schuster, is Bakopoulos' first published novel. The narrative paints a finely etched portrait of one family set against the backdrop of the late 1960s Greek military dictatorship. The Green Shore has received glowing reviews: "Bakopoulos's juxtaposition of a historic conflict with the joys and trials of motherhood, the heedlessness of youth, and the durability of family ties is poignant and effective," says Publishers Weekly; "an astute accounting of the way political climates shift inner lives," according to Time Out Chicago.
