VENDELA VIDA delivers LET THE NORTHERN LIGHTS ERASE YOUR NAME. What happens when you find out nothing you believe is true? Clarissa Iverton has just found out she’s not who she thinks she is. The only clue she has about her own identity is the name of a priest who lives above the Arctic Circle. Traveling to Lapland, she hopes to unravel the mysteries of her past, in this place where the winter sun never fully rises, only to find that nothing is what it seemed. Vida’s first novel, And Now You Can Go, was unforgettably original, with its spare, effortless prose, and marked her as a writer with an exceptional new voice. LET THE NORTHERN LIGHTS ERASE YOUR NAME more than lives up to that promise. Vendela Vida is co-editor of the excellent magazine, The Believer, the editor of The Believer Book of Writers Talking to Writers, and a founding board member and teacher at 826 Valencia, the nonprofit youth writing lab. 7:00 PM at Cody’s Fourth Street, Berkeley
