Stella's Carpet Reading with Author Lucy Black
Author Lucy Black will read from her new novel Stella's Carpet. The reading will be followed up with a Q+A from Black's husband and local artist Michael Black. Stella's Carpet: Exploring the intergenerational consequences of trauma, including those of a Holocaust survivor and a woman imprisoned during the Iranian Revolution, Stella’s Carpet weaves together the overlapping lives of those stepping outside the shadows of their own harrowing histories to make conscious decisions about how they will choose to live while forging new understandings of family, forgiveness and reconciliation. As the story unfolds, readers are invited to ponder questions about how we can endure the unimaginable, how we can live with the secrets of the past, and at what price comes love. An artful and engaging story of struggle and survival, Stella’s Carpet will resonate for those forced to find non-traditional ways to create community, and those willing to examine the threads that draw our tapestry together in this everchanging world. COVID-19 policies and guidelines will be in place at all Scugog Arts programs. Masks will need to be worn while inside the hub.
This event is free and will be accepting optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.
