Mieke Eerkens discusses and signs “All Ships Follow Me”
May 21 @ 7:00 pmFree
Come out for an evening with writer Mieke Eerkens and “All Ships Follow Me: A Family Memoir of War Across Three Continents” at Vroman’s. This book moves from Indonesia to the Netherlands to the United States, and spans generations, as Mieke recounts her parents’ lives during and just after the war, and travels with them in the present day to the sites of their childhood in an attempt to understand their experiences and how it formed them. “All Ships Follow Me” is a deeply personal, sweeping saga of the wounds of war, and the way trauma can be passed down through generations.
