In honor of the paperback launch, novelist Angela Davis-Gardner comes to Greenlight Bookstore to discuss Butterfly’s Child with Pultizer Prize-winning author and fan Jennifer Egan (A Visit From the Goon Squad).

When three-year-old Benji is plucked from the security of his home in Nagasaki to live with his American father, Lt. Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton, and stepmother, Kate, on their farm in Illinois, the family conceals Benji's true identity as a child born from a liaison between an officer and a geisha--and instead tells everyone that he is an orphan. When the truth surfaces, it will splinter this family's fragile dynamic and send Benji on the journey of a lifetime from Illinois to the Japanese settlements in Denver and San Francisco, then across the ocean to Nagasaki, where he will uncover the truth about his mother's tragic death.

To celebrate the paperback release of Butterfly’s Child, Greenlight Bookstore will offer 30% off the retail price of this title on Tuesday, April 10th.
