Finding Callidora: Book Launch @ Audain Art Museum

6:30 – 7:30 p.m. | Audain Art Museum | FREE

Come celebrate the launch of Stella Leventoyannis Harvey’s new novel, Finding Callidora. Reflecting the headlines of the day, the novel follows four generations of the Alevizopoulos family, starting with Callidora’s children, Nikos, Vasilis and Katarina. Fixed against multiple backdrops— the unforgiving terrain of the Anatolia, the isolated Greek islands of Naxos and Crete, the bustling, chaotic streets of Cairo and later the vast expanse of Canada—each sibling carries and passes on the scars of a horrific betrayal and their need to find the place where they belong. Join us for a taste of Greek treats by chef Christina Loucas, of popular food blog Afrodite’s Kitchen, and have your own copy of Finding Callidora signed by Stella.
