Robert Madygan discusses
7 pm The Solace of Trees
Described from the perspective of a child
victim, The Solace of Trees is the lesser-told
story of the tragedy of war, from the Bosnian
War to the US policy of government-
sponsored abductions. A tale shared by
countless victims in countless times and
places, The Solace of Trees is at once a page-
turner and a work of beauty and insight. It is a
sobering look at a hidden cost of war and an
affirmation of the human spirit from those
who survive the ordeal.

Arrows of Light by
7 pm Andrea Potos
In Arrows of Light, Andrea Potos lets us dwell
in those fragile moments between day and
night, love and loss, living and death. In the
stillness of a blue scarf lake, the pale ochre
walls of Van Gogh's rooms, the light that
pours through her Yaya's kitchen windows,
Potos takes us to the cusp of the unknowable.
Pulled through by the thread of her mother's
illness and eventual death, this small, elegant
collection shines its gold light on those
stunning, ephemeral details -- her mother's
coral lipstick, blueberries like small sapphires,
laundry flapping on the line like angel wings -- that seem to give us tidings of
the world beyond and its fluid relationship with what we know now and will
always remember.

limitations of the office.
