Join us for an evening with author Jeannine Antoniou, as she reads from her book "Throwing the Bones: African Encounters Beoyond What Can Be Imagined".
Tangled in the genealogy of polygamist Mormon ancestors, Jeannine Antoniou keeps a promise to write her untold story. From Antoniou's American rural roots, to remote places in southern Africa, her true tale of the raw life of another culture unfolds. The reader will recognize Antoniou's own 'heart of darkness' when distant voices echo her life before she does.
In moments of triumph, Antoniou feels the rythm of an ancient land that dances with the witchdoctor who stirs the pot of an orderly world by Throwing the Bones. It is easy to see why she was more afraid of boredom than the sleeping mamba or carrying out the improbable plot to smuggle diamonds.
In the quiet ebony of a mud-thatched hut where time gives to wonder, Jeannine Antoniou begins to answer the questions of whom she has become and more certain of what she wants in her life.
