Author Discussion at NE Harbor Library
August 3 @ 5:30 pm
On Wednesday, Aug. 3, at 5:30 p.m., the Northeast Harbor Library will host Andrea Yaryura Clark in conversation with author Jennifer Nadel to discuss Clark’s debut historical fiction novel “On a Night of a Thousand Stars.”
Told in dual timelines, the novel follows a young couple during the start of Argentina’s Dirty War in the 1970s, and a daughter 20 years later who searches for the truth of her family’s past.
Andrea Yaryura Clark grew up in Argentina amid the political violence of the 1970s until her family moved to North America. After completing her university studies, she returned to Buenos Aires to reconnect with her roots. She followed with interest the stories then emerging about the children of the “Disappeared” — the youngest victims of Argentina’s military dictatorship of the 1970s — who were coming of age and grappling with the fates of their families. Clark conducted number interviews documenting their stories, which inspired “On a Night of a Thousand Stars.” Clark now resides in New York City with her family and spends summers on MDI.
