Family is what we know best, but it’s not always comfortable. This universal theme can also yield stories of horrific crime, institutionalized children, and accidental death. Authors Emer Martin, Kagiso Lesego Molope, and Jaap Robben discuss family dynamics of their recent books set in Ireland, South Africa, and an unnamed island somewhere between Scotland and Norway. Moderated by Litquake's Jack Boulware. FREE, $5-10 suggested donation
