A Book to Call Home, with Sayonara Stutgard and Chris Keulemans
Following up on the festival theme Whose House is This?, in A Book to Come Home to we asked one festival author the following question: which book brought you home? The answers could go in all directions. Perhaps the author chose a book that describes a house that feels like his/her own home, or a place where he/she wishes to live. But it could also be a book whose style of writing or manner of thinking makes the author feel at home. Or it could be the relief of finally reading a story in which the protagonist reflects his/her appearance. The program was a peek into the bookshelves as well as the soul of each author.
Sayonara spoke about Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Chris about Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
