The Pulitzer Prize finalist and New York Times bestselling author of 2012's award-winning Far from the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity discusses his new collection of essays Far and Away: Reporting from the Brink of Change. The collection is an aggregate of Solomon's writing on his experience journeying through regions across the world undergoing political, cultural, and spiritual shifts. His book covers seven continents and 25 years of travel—from Byzantium to Senegal to Romania. Oblong Books and Music presents this author at the Morton Memorial Library in Rhinecliff on Saturday, May 14, at 6pm. Tickets are $10 and are able to go toward the purchase of Solomon's book.
