Francesca Marciano 

When: Thu., June 12, 7 p.m. 2008
Price: free

Italian photojournalist Maria Galante is on assignment in Afghanistan, where she must photograph girls who have attempted suicide rather than go through with arranged marriages to older men. The very act of being interviewed and photographed goes against local tradition, and Maria's moral struggles form the core of Francesca Marciano's new novel The End of Manners, which she will discuss at Rakestraw Books (409 Railroad Ave., Danville) on Thursday, June 12. 7 p.m.
