Anker Frankoni shares poems, songs, stories, and passages from the first release in his “Mexican Eskimo” trilogy at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 20, at Village Books, 1200 11th St., as he explains the complex turn of events that led him down the writers’ path.
Frankoni is on his book tour in a vintage 1983 Bluebird Wanderlodge dubbed the #FollowUsBus.
What he calls an “intricate layer-cake of commingled family trees and karmic collisions,” his novel is a true-to-life love story about finding forgiveness, trust, and hope with a lifeline of spiritual guidance, amidst generations of anger and neglect, substance abuse and suicide.
Ten percent of his writer’s income goes to nonprofit groups working to stop child abuse.
