About the event

The Center for Fiction is thrilled to welcome Katherine Vaz to celebrate her latest novel. Above the Salt follows two Portuguese refugees fleeing political violence who reunite in mid-nineteenth-century Illinois, on the cusp of the Civil War. The star-crossed lovers are torn between love and duty, their story unfolding at the site of Abraham Lincoln’s home. Join us for a lively presentation from Vaz on the research she conducted for the historical novel, maintaining momentum on a writing project that took eighteen years to complete, and her career at the forefront of the Portuguese-American literary landscape. Her presentation will be followed by an extended audience Q&A.
