Shira Nayman, author of River, will be signing in the OBPO Pavilion on Friday at 2:00 PM. River is the story of a 14-year-old girl, Emily, who travels back in time, and across continents, encountering her maternal forbears when they were her age. She has deep encounters with the young women she meets, as well as with the history that shaped them and, ultimately, her own soul.
