Wordplay Festival: Intercontinental Series featuring Helen Oyeyemi

Fri, May 7 from 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

Helen Oyeyemi, bestselling author of What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours, crafts a mesmerizing portrayal of two lovers forever changed by an unusual train journey in her new novel Peaces. As Otto and Xavier Shin depart on what appears to be a train constructed by their wildest imaginations, we discover that the past is never truly behind us—and could possibly be sitting right next to us.

The Loft’s Virtual Wordplay is presented by St. Catherine University and Star Tribune.

In partnership with Literary Arts (Portland, OR), The Loft (Minneapolis, MN), Black Mountain Institute (Las Vegas, NV), and Wisconsin Book Festival (Madison, WI).
