Books & Brews with Sofia Samatar & Lucy Bryan

Sofia Samatar

In the late nineteenth century, a group of German-speaking Mennonites traveled from Russia into Central Asia, where their charismatic leader predicted Christ would return. Over a century later, local author Sofia Samatar followed their path, and chronicles their story in her new book The White Mosque. She’s one of our speakers for Books & Brews, along with Lucy Bryan, author of In Between Places: A Memoir in Essays, happening in Harrisonburg on December 13, 2022. WMRA’s Chris Boros asked Sofia Samatar to describe the mosque.

Chris Boros is WMRA’s Program Director and local host from 10am-4pm Monday-Friday.
