Arts & Letters Live: Dani Shapiro

November 28 @ 7:30 pm

$10 – $50


In conversation with Melissa Harrison

Dani Shapiro’s Signal Fires, a novel of haunting beauty, examines the ties that bind families together—and the secrets that can break them apart.  

In the summer of 1985, a tragic car crash on Division Street changes the lives of three teens in an instant. For Ben Wilf, a young doctor who arrives on the scene, and his family, the circumstances of that fatal accident will become the deepest kind of secret, one so dangerous it can never be spoken. A literary tour de force, Signal Fires is a luminous meditation on family, memory, and the healing power of interconnectedness. 

Dani Shapiro is the host and creator of the podcast Family Secrets. Signal Fires was named a Best Book of 2022 by Time magazine, the Washington Post, and numerous other publications. Her most recent memoir, Inheritance, was an instant New York Times bestseller. Both Signal Fires and Inheritance were winners of the National Jewish Book Award.
