What do Walkmans, A–Z Storage, and nursing homes have in common? To Celeste, the answer she so long sought becomes far more harrowing than she could have imagined. Author Ciera Burch takes readers along on this journey with Celeste, as the protagonist yearns for answers about her past from her enigmatic, aging grandmother. "Yvonne," this year's One City One Story Selection, mixes themes of family, loss, and connection with complex portraits of the titular character and her granddaughter as they reunite decades after the latter's adoption. Grab your copy at the BBF info table in the Bolling Building, and join us for a discussion with Burch and Harvard University Office for the Arts’ Alicia Anstead, facilitator extraordinaire. Be sure to tweet your questions and thoughts beforehand at @1city1story! Sponsored by Bookbub.
