Live from Prairie Lights: Marcus Zusak
Prairie Lights and the Iowa City Public Library present Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief and The Messenger, to read from his recent novel, Bridge of Clay.
An unforgettable and sweeping family saga, Bridge of Clay is the breathtaking story of five brothers who bring each other up in a world run by their own rules. As the Dunbar boys love and fight and learn to reckon with the adult world, they discover the moving secret behind their father’s disappearance. At the center of the Dunbar family is Clay, a boy who will build a bridge—for his family, for his past, for greatness, for his sins, for a miracle. The question is, how far is Clay willing to go? And how much can he overcome?
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event. Markus Zusak will be happy to personalize an unlimited number of copies of Bridge Of Clay purchased at the event. Attendees are permitted to bring only one previously purchased book to the event to be signed.
