Watermark Books & Cafe will host Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg for an author talk and signing of Miriam's Well on Saturday, June 30 at 4:00 p.m.
In this modern day retelling of the Exodus, Miriam wanders the political and spiritual desert of a changing America. Torn between her roots as the Jewish daughter of a Black father and white mother, her yearning for home, and her brothers—Aaron, a successful New York City attorney; and Moses, an autistic Kansas artist.
Miriam, an astonishing cook and singer, has a knack for showing up to feed and help people at landmark events, including People's Park during the Summer of Love, the Wounded Knee encampment in South Dakota, the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco, the Oklahoma City terrorist attack, 9/11, and Hurricane Katrina. As she seeks the promised land, she shows her people, and eventually herself, how to turn the chaos and despair of our times into music, meals, and miracles.
