Audrey Niffenegger @ MPL Central - January 14th, 7 p.m.

Her Fearful.jpg

The Friends of the Milwaukee Public Library Present Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry, at Centennial Hall on Thursday, January 14th, 7 PM. This free event is being held at the Milwaukee Public Library's Centennial Hall, 733 North 8th Street.

Her Fearful Symmetry is the story of two twins, Julia and Valentina. Julia and Valentina are mirror twins. This means that things are opposite with each other, and in Valentina's case, her heart is located on the right side instead of her left. When their mother's twin sister, Elspeth, dies, she leaves the twins the flat she owned in London, with one caveat: they must live in it for one year and they may not let their parents into the home or to have access to any of her things. You wonder why the secrecy. The revelations that afterward unfold may well leave you speechless. I know I felt a little uneasy. Valentina's heart is not the only thing misplaced. Check catalog for availability.
