speaking & signing
her new novel

The Same Sky

Join us tonight as we celebrate the latest novel from the acclaimed Austin author of How to Be Lostand Close Your Eyes, a beautiful and heartrending novel about motherhood, resilience, and faith—a ripped-from-the-headlines story of two families on both sides of the American border. Hispanic Alliance for the Arts Symphony will kick things off, then Kirkus Review's Clay Smith will interview Ward and Alexia Rodriguez, who brought Ward to shelters at the border and served as translator while conducting research for the book. 

Amanda Eyre Ward is the critically acclaimed author of five novels, including the bestseller How to Be Lost. She has spent the last year visiting shelters in Texas and California, meeting immigrant children and hearing their stories. This novel is inspired by them.
