Donít Letís Go to the Dogs Tonight
“You can't rewind war. It spools on, and on, and on, looping and jumping, distorted and cracked with age... and no one can even remember, or imagine, why the war was organized in the first place.” Join us for a powerful and intimate exploration of war, family, love and death with acclaimed author Alexandra Fuller in a special Visions and Voices signature event. Fullerís debut book, Donít Letís Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood, documents her childhood in Rhodesia during a time of intense struggle for independence. Her four non-fiction books, at once anti-war stories and love stories, are rooted in the belief that “everything we do is political,” especially “the words we have the courage to speak.” This event will be held on Tuesday, March 11, at 7 p.m. in Town and Gown. A book signing and reception will follow. For more info, click here.
