Christina Baker Kline in conversation with John Searles

Christina Baker Kline
Author Event (Fiction)
Tuesday February 21, 2017 7:00 PM Christina Baker Kline weaves fact and fiction into a powerful new novel A Piece of the World illuminating a little-known part of history. To Christina Olson, the entire world was her family's remote farm. She seemed destined for a small life. Instead, for decades, she was host and inspiration for Andrew Wyeth and became the subject of one of the best known paintings of the twentieth century.

Bill Hayes in Conversation With Bill Goldstein

Bill Goldstein, Bill Hayes
Author Event (Biography)
Wednesday February 22, 2017 7:00 PM Bill Hayes came to New York with only the vaguest idea of how he would get by. Grieving over the death of his partner, he quickly discovered the profound consolations of the city's rhythms. And he unexpectedly fell in love again, with his friend and neighbor, the writer and neurologist Oliver Sacks. Insomniac City: New York, Oliver, and Me is both a meditation on grief and a celebration of life.

Thrill Me: Essays on Fiction

Benjamin Percy
Author Event (Reference)
Thursday March 02, 2017 7:00 PM Author Benjamin Percy challenges the notion that literary and genre fiction are mutually exclusive.
