Maya Alexandri presents The Plague Cycle


September 28, 2018




The Ivy Bookshop Stage

Maya Alexandri’s new novel, The Plague Cycle, delivers a cycle of linked short stories that unfold during a devastating world-wide epidemic, as experienced by aid workers in an unnamed African country. A stunning fast-paced work that encompasses despair and hope and, above all, resilience, these stories are, in the words of Jessica Anya Blau, “like modern day fairy tales.” Alexandri is the author of a novel, The Celebration Husband, and numerous short stories.  Her story, “Ann Noni Mini,” was nominated for a 2018 Pushcart Prize.
