Join us for a discussion of Turkish-British novelist Elif Shafak's latest novel, The Island of Missing Trees. Copies of the book will be available one month in advance.

Elif Shafak's latest novel, The Island of Missing Trees, unfolds a beautiful and moving story of love, roots, displacement, identity, faith, belief, and eco-consciousness. Set against two settings, London in the early 2010s and Cyprus in 1974, the narrative moves back and forth and reveals the story of the star-crossed lovers, a Muslim Turkish young woman, Defne, and a Greek young man, Kostas, who end up marrying and moving to England to raise their daughter, Ada, when the war ravaged and divided their homeland, Cyprus. Shafak's novel weaves together myth, history, politics, and eco-consciousness in a story that contains vivid reminders of how geo-politics and violence wreck ordinary people's lives. Limited to 15 participants.
