An Evening with S.W. Leicher, author of ACTS OF ATONEMENT
S.W. Leicher, a longtime resident of the Upper West Side, will read from and signing copies of her new novel, ACTS OF ATONEMENT, at Shakespeare & Co. on June 21st at 6:30pm at the 2020 Broadway location.
ACTS OF ATONEMENT is a timely novel about two women—one Latina, one Jewish—living against expectations. They share a home in Brooklyn and have built a life together; one escaped from her rigidly observant Orthodox family in Boro Park and the other left her childhood in the South Bronx. In exchange, each woman made the decision to renounce her past and sever ties with certain family members. As the novel progresses, the couple’s relationship is tested—by a speech, a death, and an act of violence. Ultimately, they find strength and healing with the help of friends and unexpected allies, religious beliefs, and their unshakable devotion to one another.
