Peaks Island author Nicole d’Entremont will read at Longfellow Books from her novel, City of Belief, which I describe here. City of Belief is set in a Lower East Side soup kitchen in the mid 1960s. November 9th, the date of the reading, coincides this year with the forty-fifth anniversary of the massive blackout that shrouded New York City, and the shocking self-immolation of Roger LaPorte on the steps of the UN building. Both of these are pivotal events in the lives of Catholic relief workers on the Bowery and Vietnam-war protesters.
