Alan Lightman -- "Three Flames"

Alan Lightman will speak about and sign his new book, Three Flames, on Thursday, September 12th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
Three Flames portrays the struggles of a Cambodian farming family against the extreme patriarchal attitudes of their society and the cruel and dictatorial father, set against a rural community that is slowly being exposed to the modern world and its values. A vivid story of revenge and forgiveness, of a culture smothering the dreams of freedom, and of tradition against courage, Three Flames intricately braids together the stories of one Cambodian family.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
