About the Event

In Romain’s poignant, yet witty novel about secret love and loss, a woman skilled at translating the words of others must learn to understand her own heart. Fascinated by a young woman's performance of "The Lost Child" in Guanajuato's central plaza, painfully shy expatriate, Callie Quinn asks the woman for a trumpet lesson -- and ends up confronting her longing to know her own lost child.
