In a recent interview, the writer Amit Chaudury said: ‘‘Great themes are of secondary importance to the writer; what is of primary interest are the accidents of existence.’’

The accidents of existence and how they play out in our lives, especially around the theme of identity, belonging and displacement, are what interest author Alba Arikha, who will be discussing how they weaved their way into her most recent novel, ‘WHERE TO FIND ME.’ Narrated in two voices, and straddling Paris during the occupation, British Mandate Palestine and London in the 1950’s, it tells the story of two women, fifty years apart. Despite being strangers, they recognize something in each other: both have suffered a trauma that will have a profound impact on their lives, and both strive to overcome it. When fate will reunite them nearly twenty years later, it is with unexpected consequences. A story of loss, but also of love and redemption.

In addition to discussing her book, Alba will be singing a song she wrote about one of the two main characters, Flora Dobbs.
