The War of the Saints Book Discussion
6:30 p.m. at the Sioux City Public Museum
Jorge Amado's, The War of the Saints, was published in 1993 (English translation 1995). Amado was one of the best-known Brazilian writers (1912-2001) whose extensive work has been popularized in film and television. His novels focused on life in the eastern Brazilian state of Bahia and won him international acclaim. In The War of the Saints, a holy icon of Saint Barbara of Thunder bound for a museum exhibition comes to life and disappears within the city. The novel is an exuberant tale set in the city of Bahia amid the sights and sounds of carnival. Participants are encouraged to pre-register for the book discussion and purchase a copy of the book for $5 at the Museum. Held in conjunction with the exhibit: Bandits & Heroes, Poets & Saints: Popular Art of the Northeast of Brazil.
