Join us for an intimate evening with Jennifer Egan discussing her highly-anticipated novel, The Candy House. A ‘sibling’ to her 2011 Pulitzer Prize winner, A Visit From the Goon Squad, The Candy House is a “radiant… an exhilarating delight… Egan opens windows on entrancing new worlds, in which what happened depends on who’s telling the story.” (Laura Miller, Slate) The evening is being generously hosted by Kate Manning
