A Coming-Of-Age Story of Travel, surgery Magic and Healing in the Aftermath of Loss and Trauma
Join born-and-bred New Yorker and author, neuropathologist Suki Valentine, as she reads from her debut novel, My Sister’s Shadow. In this tale of travel, love, loss and magic, 19 year old Freesia, a goth feminist poet, grapples with her relationship to others and to herself in the wake of her sister’s suicide.
Author Suki Valentine is a writer, activist, artist and long-time rabble-rouser. Bronx-born Suki Valentine has nothing to hide and a lot to give. This is her first book.
