Prepare to be transported to the vibrant streets of Baltimore's Govans neighborhood through the literary lens of Antje Rauwerda's debut novel, "SLOW TIME." This highly anticipated event promises an immersive experience as Rauwerda, alongside the accomplished writer Marian Crotty, takes us on a captivating journey through the pages of her book. As residents of Govans themselves, Rauwerda and Crotty offer a unique and authentic perspective, allowing attendees to explore the intricate tapestry of this neighborhood through their fictional narratives. "SLOW TIME" is a poignant exploration of reconciling the past with the present, delving into the depths of trauma and loss while seeking solace in the diverse lives that intertwine within this community. Rauwerda's novel is a testament to her multifaceted literary prowess, having previously authored academic works such as "The Writer and The Overseas Childhood" and numerous articles on postcolonial literature. Her ability to seamlessly transition between genres and themes is a testament to her versatility as a writer. Joining her on stage is Marian Crotty, the acclaimed author of "What Counts as Love," a collection that garnered critical acclaim and prestigious accolades, including a longlisting for the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Short Story Collection. With her forthcoming collection "Near Strangers" on the horizon, Crotty's presence promises to elevate the literary discourse to new heights. This event is a must-attend for anyone seeking an enriching cultural experience, a deeper understanding of Baltimore's literary landscape, and an opportunity to engage with two remarkable authors at the forefront of their craft.
