Rochester Reads 2019! Author Omar El Akkad to visit Geneseo, March 28 3:30pm

Omar El Akkad, author of “American War,” will be at the Student Union Hunt Room on Thursday, March 28, from 3:30 to 5pm. El Akkad will be reading from his work and doing a book signing.

“American War” is the 2019 selection for the  Writers & Books  Rochester Reads community-wide reading program.

El Akkad’s “American War” envisions a second American Civil War at the end of the 21st century. Within the story, told through the eyes of one family, climate change has resulted in political upheaval and devastating violence, and the country’s population is further diminished by a plague.
