The book, “Light of the World” by Elizabeth Alexander


Following the death of her husband, artist and chef Ficre Ghebreyesus, poet Elizabeth Alexander found herself at an existential crossroads. Her new memoir, The Light of the World, describes a very personal and yet universal quest for meaning, understanding, and acceptance. Elizabeth Alexander will be reading at the Women’s International Literary Festival on Saturday, March 7, 2015 at the Pratt Library Main Branch at 1 p.m.
