Zinzi Clemmons, the author of What We Lose, has been praised as an author to watch. Come hear what she has to say on Thursday, November 2 at 8:00 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center in Palo Alto, CA.

zinzi 1What We Lose, which Vogue calls, “the debut novel of the year,” is a powerful and innovative work that questions the nature of identity, grief and love through the eyes of a young woman who loses her mother to cancer. The novel confronts the horrors and the legacy of apartheid, and the tyranny of race in the personal and political realms.
