Writer Masha Hamilton’s new novel, 31 Hours, asks questions that have plagued our nation since the 2001 terrorist attacks. It tells the story of a mother who wakes one night, certain that something is wrong with her adult son Jonas. Readers already know what she doesn’t: Jonas is being sequestered by a group of Islamic extremists, hours before he’s supposed to commit an act of terrorism on U.S. soil. Hamilton worked for the Associated Press as a correspondent in the Middle East for five years and has returned there to report from Afghanistan as recently as last year. Her experiences run through her book, which she reads and signs at 7 p.m. at Joseph-Beth Booksellers (24519 Cedar Rd., Lyndhurst, 216.691.7000). It’s free. — Michael Gill
