Are You Jungle Curious? Reading, Talk and Slideshow: Into the Jungle, Erica Ferencik

June 25, 2019 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join Erica Ferencik for a brief reading from her new novel, “Into The jungle,” which Publisher’s Weekly calls “[A] ferocious fever dream of a thriller,” as well as a talk and slide show on the Peruvian rainforest where she spent a month researching the book. She says, “The jungle is an iconic place, yet it’s so distant from most of our realities that it’s often reduced to mindless metaphors: it’s a jungle out there, the jungle of the mind, the heart and so on. But what about the real jungle, a place few of us have been? What makes it so terrifying, unique, inspiring, otherworldly?”
