PEN America Author’s Evening with Joshua Ferris

This is a private event.

Join us for an intimate evening with Joshua Ferris discussing his latest novel, A Calling for Charlie Barnes. National Book Award finalist Ferris returns in this “compassionate” novel about a modern American family and a man on a secret mission to uncover the world’s hidden truths—until his two lives come crashing together (Publishers Weekly, starred review). A Calling for Charlie Barnes is a profound and tender portrait of a man whose desperate need to be loved is his downfall, and a brutally funny account of how that love is ultimately earned. This evening is being hosted by author Christine Coulson.
