By Jerry Filmore Jr. –

The Worcester Public Library (WPL) announced on Wednesday that it will host a virtual author talk with award-winning Palestinian American author Hala Alyan on Saturday, April 17 at 11 a.m. on Zoom.

WPL says, “That Alyan will read a brief passage from her new novel “The Arsonists’ City” and there will be a brief talk with a question and answer period. The novel is a rich family story with a personal look at the legacy of war in the Middle East, as well as an unforgettable portrayal of how we hold on to the people and places we call home.”

Author Hala Alyan, WPL says, “Is the author of Salt Houses, winner of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and the Arab American Book Award and a finalist for the Chautauqua Prize, as well as four award-winning collections of poetry, most recently The Twenty-Ninth Year.
