Community Room | Peaks Island Branch Library
PEAKS ISLAND WRITER Laima Vince will speak and read a chapter from her novel, This Is Not My Sky, a story of three generations of women living in New York City…each carrying the burden of history.
The novel opens in post-World War II in the Lithuanian countryside, where school teachers, students,
and farmers have formed a resistance against the Soviet Union. The novel spans twentieth century history from a woman’s perspective.
