Author Nomi Eve presents Henna House

Boise Public Library will host historical fiction author Nomi Eve on Wednesday, January 21, at 7:00 p.m. in the Marion Bingham Room on the third floor of the Main Library. Eve's newest book, Henna House, is a coming-of-age story set in the exotic world of Yemen's Jewish community in the 1920s and 30s. The stories and experiences of her young protagonist, Adela, capture intimate details of everyday family life, women's roles, and communal customs and traditions, including the mysteries and healing art of henna rituals.

Eve's first book, The Family Orchard, was a Book-of-the-Month club main selection and was nominated for a National Jewish Book Award. She is a freelance writer for The Village Voice and New York Newsday, and a lecturer at Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania.

A book signing will follow the presentation, with books available for purchase. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Friends of the Boise Public Library.
