In conversation with Tamala Edwards, anchor, 6ABC Action News morning edition

Exploring family sagas and themes of love, war, and politics, Isabel Allende’s historical fiction “rearranges reality with a blend of memories, mysticism and imagination” (Philadelphia Inquirer). The recipient of 50 awards in more than a dozen countries, she is also the creator of an eponymous foundation dedicated to empowering women and girls worldwide. Allende’s first international bestseller The House of the Spirits was adapted into a feature film starring Meryl Streep. Her other novels include the New York Times bestsellers Inés of My SoulPortrait in SepiaDaughter of Fortune, and Maya’s Notebook. The Japanese Lover tells an epic story of young love, internment, and redemption amidst the cruelties of World War II.

A pre-signed copy of the book accompanies each auditorium ticket.
