In addition to writing fiction, essays and journalism, author Lauren Markham works at a high school for immigrant youth in California’s Bay Area. These literary and cultural passions meet in her 2017 book, The Far Away Brothers: Two Young Migrants and the Making of an American Life. In it, Markham tells the true story of teenage twin brothers who, fleeing gang violence, make the harrowing journey from their native El Salvador to the Golden State, where they encounter a new set of challenges. The author and Vermont College of Fine Arts alum appears at Phoenix Books Burlington to discuss her hard-hitting page-turner, which the New York Times describes as “impeccably timed, intimately reported and beautifully expressed.”
