Paul Harding: Enon
Friday, September 13, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
RiverRun Bookstore is thrilled to welcome back Paul Harding, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Tinkers, to discuss his new novel, Enon. Tinkers has a special place in our hearts at RiverRun, and we're so excited for Paul and the new book!
Hailed as “a masterpiece” (NPR), Tinkers, Harding’s Pulitzer Prize–winning debut, is a modern classic. The Dallas Morning News observed that “like Faulkner, Paul Harding never shies away from describing what seems impossible to put into words.” Here, in Enon, Harding follows a year in the life of Charlie Crosby as he tries to come to terms with a shattering personal tragedy. Grandson of George Crosby (the protagonist of Tinkers), Charlie inhabits the same dynamic landscape of New England, its seasons mirroring his turbulent emotional odyssey. Along the way, Charlie’s encounters are brought to life by his wit, his insights into history, and his yearning to understand the big questions. A stunning mosaic of human experience, Enon affirms Paul Harding as one of the most gifted and profound writers of his generation.
The $5 ticket can be redeemed for $5 in credit toward the purchase of one of Paul's books. (One ticket per book, please.) We hand out the tickets the night of the event, when you check in at the door.
If you would like to avoid the fees, you can also purchase tickets by calling RiverRun Bookstore at 603-431-2100.
