October Powerful Prose!

We invite you to join us for a Fall Powerful Prose on Tuesday, October 10th, at 6:30pm! A wine reception will precede the discussion at 6:00pm. OCU Professor and Author Christiane Faris will be leading a discussion over This House is Mine by Dorte Hansen.

This House is Mine
All her life Vera has felt like a stranger in the old and drafty half-timbered farmhouse she arrived at as a five-year-old refugee from East Prussia in 1945, and yet she can’t seem to let it go. Sixty years later, her niece Anne suddenly shows up at her door with her small son. Anne has fled the trendy Hamburg, Germany neighborhood she never fit into after her relationship imploded. Vera and Anne are strangers to each other but have much more in common than they think. As the two strong-willed and very different women share the great old house, they find what they have never thought to search for: a family.

Told in skillfully crafted alternating points of view and a nonlinear storyline, Dorte Hansen’s internationally bestselling debut novel This House is Mine showcases her impressive talent for characterization and dialogue in an exceptional book that combines emotional depth and humor. The author’s sparse language and sometimes oblique references make for a deeply immersive reading experience, and the characters will resonate long after the last page has been turned.

About the Author: DORTE HANSEN was born in Husum in northern Germany. She studied languages and completed a Ph.D. in linguistics. She then turned to journalism, spent several years working as a radio editor, and is now an author for radio and print. This House Is Mine is her first novel.

Due to an unforeseen family illness, Stella has had to cancel tonight’s 6:30pm signing! We apologize for any inconvenience of those planning to attend!
