Virtual Author Talk via the Gunn Memorial Library & Hickory Stick Book Shop

The Gunn Memorial Library and the Hickory Stick Bookshop are pleased to welcome international bestselling author, Jan-Philip Sendker to virtually discuss his latest novel, The Heart Remembers, the final volume in the Art of Hearing Heartbeats trilogy on Thursday, June 10 @ 6:30 pm. This novel is a tender testament to the power of memory and the familial ties that bind us across time and place. This highly anticipated final book in the beloved series is a stirring odyssey transporting readers from Burma (present-day Myanmar) to New York, and back again. Having spent much time immersed in and studying Burmese culture, Jan-Philipp Sendker expertly weaves signature lessons, hopes, humor, tragedy and rhythms at the intersection of Burmese daily life and its political tensions, into his own storytelling, rendering this final novel’s magical quality and its wise and universal reach.

Jan-Philipp Sendker, born in Hamburg in 1960, is an internationally bestselling author. He was the American correspondent for Stern from 1990 to 1995, and its Asian correspondent from 1995 to 1999. His first novel, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, was published in 2012, and the sequel, A Well-Tempered Heart, appeared in 2014.
