Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anthony Doerr (All the Light We Cannot See) celebrates the launch of his latest work of literary fiction, Cloud Cuckoo Land, with a presentation on the soaring novel about children on the cusp of adulthood in a broken world. His novel follows four children separated by centuries but connected by an ancient text—the story of Aethon, who yearns to transform into a bird in order to escape to the utopian paradise in the sky. Each of these children find solace in Aethon’s character as they navigate the perils of their own time.
