Ruta Sepetys

Tuesday, October 22, 7:30 p.m.

Ruta Sepetys is an internationally acclaimed #1 New York Times bestselling author of historical fiction. The New York Times Book Review hailed her as a “champion of the interstitial people so often ignored—whole populations lost in the cracks of history.” Her newest novel, The Fountains of Silence, is an epic, heart-wrenching story about identity, unforgettable love, repercussions of war, and the hidden violence of silence, inspired by the true postwar struggles of Spain. When Dallas high-society teen Daniel Matheson and his family arrive in Madrid, photography—and fate—introduce him to Ana, whose family's obstacles reveal the lingering grasp of the Spanish Civil War. While his father conducts business with Franco, Daniel makes it his mission to bring to light the atrocities the world has ignored.
