    A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, the 21st at 2:30 PM

    A Constellation of Vital Phenonmena, by Anthony Marra, is a New York Times Notable Book of the Year and Washington Post Top Ten Book of the Year. The story takes place in wartime Chechnya, where love provides the means to overcome the surrounding destitution.

    The main character, Havaa, is an eight-year-old girl separated from her family and burned out of her home. A neighbor, Akhmed, takes her to an abandoned hospital in which the only remaining doctor, Sonja Rabina, reluctantly takes the two under her wing. Sonja is exhausted by the influx of patients she already has to care for, but during the first five days of Akhmed and Havaa’s stay, things begin to change in extraordinary ways that bond the three together.
