An Evening with Ruth Ozeki (Oct 28)

October 22nd, 2013

Save the date to attend the free, Go Big Read author event.  Author Ruth Ozeki’s public presentation is scheduled for Monday, October 28, 2013 beginning at 7:00 PM in Varsity Hall, Union South.

A Tale for the Time Being brings the life of troubled Japanese school-girl, Nao, to the attention of author, Ruth, within the flotsam and jetsam–a Hello Kitty lunchbox–washed ashore in British Columbia.  Alternating between Nao and Ruth, through Canada, Japan and the United States, and intersecting with critical historical and world events, the reader is deeply-moved as each protagonist reconciles what is, and what may be, within her time and place.

Go Big Read” is UW-Madison’s common book program where students, staff and the community are invited to read the same book, then participate in a variety of related programs in-and-out of the classroom.
