    Megan Bannen Author Talk and Signing

    • Date: June 23, 2018
    • Time: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM

    Watermark Books & Cafe will host Megan Bannen on Saturday, June 23 at 2:00 p.m. for an author talk and signing of The Bird and the Blade. The Bird and the Blade is a retelling of an epic poem from ancient Persia, which is perhaps best known in the West as the source material for Puccini's last opera, Turandot. Megan turns the narrative on its head to reinterpret this epic story through the perspective of slave girl Jinghua, who is given a dynamic and compelling back-story of her own, and a heaping serving of intelligence and wit. Author Megan Bannen is a librarian in the Kansas city area, living in Overland Park.
