Jordan Salama '19 is the author of Every Day the River Changes, a Princeton Pre-Read book and a Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year. His work has appeared in National GeographicThe New York TimesSmithsonianScientific American, and on NPR’s All Things Considered. He lives in New York.
Jordan joined PANE last year to give a highly engaging talk on Every Day the River Changes.  We are all looking forward to a discussion of this new work.
Stranger in the Desert is a beautiful, soulful story ranging across continents and languages, topographies and etymologies, time and space. Through a pastiche of maps, diaries, and archival materials, Jordan Salama attempts to piece together a lost family history, and the result is both delightfully idiosyncratic yet somehow still universal, revealing a great deal about the elusive concepts of identity and home, and what it means to find one's place in the world by following one’s roots.” 
—Jennifer Senior, Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times bestselling author 
The event will be held at Porter Square Books in Cambrige on Wednesday, February 28th at 7:00 PM.  Please go to their website to RSVP
