Join Anna Badkhen for a reading and discussion of her latest book, Fisherman's Blues

Once upon a time fishermen who launched their pirogues from the coast of Senegal could dip their hands into the ocean and pull out fish as big as their thighs. But in an Atlantic decimated by overfishing and climate change, fish are harder and harder to find. Here, Badkhen discovers, all boundaries are permeable–between land and sea, between myth and truth, even between storyteller and story. Fisherman’s Blues immerses us in a community navigating a time of unprecedented environmental, economic, and cultural upheaval with resilience, ingenuity, and wonder.
