This evening is now full. 

Join us for an intimate evening with Gary Shteyngart discussing his latest novel, Our Country Friends. Taking place at a country house at the beginning of the pandemic, Shteyngart’s work is “a perfect novel for these times and all times” as well as “a representation of all that is good and true and beautiful about literature” (The New York Times). This evening is hosted by Tracy Higgins and Jim Leitner.

If you have any questions, please contact Christy Wensley at [email protected].
