- Event: South African-born and award-winning playwright Pamela Gien discusses her debut novel, The Syringa Tree. A white child loses her innocence when she confronts the anguish of a Black family torn apart by law. Gien uses spare, beautiful prose to describe the history and politics of apartheid, and she builds to an unforgettable climax with the 1976 Soweto uprising, led by almost 10,000 students and resulting in more than 500 deaths.
