André Aciman revisits his heralded lost love story

André Aciman's well-loved novel, "Call Me by Your Name" was first published in 2007. Ten years later, it was made into an Academy Award-winning film.

His new book "Find Me" is a sequel set in Florence, Rome and Paris. It revisits the main characters decades after their first momentous meeting. The work continues Aciman's exploration of the nature of love and how it endures through inevitable change.

André Aciman teaches comparative literature at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He was interviewed by Seattleite Dave Wheeler, associate editor for the book industry news source, Shelf Awareness.

This event took place at the Seattle Public Library Central Library on November 4. It was co-presented by SPL and the Elliott Bay Book Company.

KUOW's Sonya Harris recorded the conversation.
