Book Launch: Gary Barker, The Museum of Lost Love

October 1, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Join local author Gary Barker to celebrate the publication of his newest book, The Museum of Lost Love.

In Zagreb, a couple discovers a museum that displays of broken relationships. A whirlwind summer of reconnecting with lost pasts follows.

Tyler is in therapy. Katia and Goran are in love. On a summer trip to Zagreb, the couple discover an unusual museum that displays mementos of broken relationships. Inside, Goran stumbles upon an exhibit that seems to be addressed to him, from a girl he met in a Sarajevo refugee camp at age fourteen. What follows is a whirlwind summer of reconnecting with lost pasts: Goran confronts the youth he lost during the Yugoslav Wars, Katia heads to Brazil to find her roots, and Afghanistan veteran Tyler pours out his soul. Set against alternating backdrops of violent circumstances, this novel is a soulful testament to the resilience of the human heart.

This event is free and open for all to attend!
