Mira is a rising star in the Republican Party, but her campaign against reproductive rights puts her at odds with her best friend, Jude, an award-winning journalist. When Jude discovers that Mira’s war hero husband Douglas is linked to a massacre of Afghan civilians, Mira is thrown into a whirlwind of political intrigue and must decide whether to hold on to her career or save her husband. Noms de Guerre is a haunting, lyrical and passionate story about friendship, love, war, and politics.
The reading will take place at at No. Six Depot Roastery and Café, 6 Depot Street in West Stockbridge, MA and is part of the inaugural event in this year's Lift Ev'ry Voice Festival, which celebrates African-American Culture and Heritage in the Berkshires. This year the Festival is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the passage of the 13th Amendment, which ended slavery in the United States.
