Description

TICKET PRICE INCLUDES 1 HARDCOVER COPY OF "OLIVE AGAIN"


ELIZABETH STROUT, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and #1 New York Times bestselling author, will talk with WAMC's Joe Donahue about the return of her beloved , inimitable character, Olive Kitteridge!

When Elizabeth Strout won the Pulitzer Prize for Olive Kitteridge, the citation said the novel-in-stories packed “a cumulative emotional wallop, bound together by polished prose and by Olive, the title character, blunt, flawed and fascinating.” The book has sold nearly 1.5 million copies, and Frances McDormand played the titular character in an HBO adaptation that won 8 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Limited Series.

Elizabeth Strout is also the author of Anything Is Possible, winner of The Story Prize; My Name Is Lucy Barton, longlisted for the Man Booker Prize; The Burgess Boys, named one of the best books of the year by The Washington Post and NPR; Abide with Me, a national bestseller; and Amy and Isabelle, winner of the Los Angeles Times Art Seidenbaum Award for First Fiction and the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize. She has also been a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, the International Dublin Literary Award, and the Orange Prize. Her short stories have been published in a number of magazines, including The New Yorker.

Strout says, “I never thought I would go back to Olive Kitteridge. I thought she was finished. But I found myself in a European city for the weekend and she just appeared very much like she did the very first time she ever showed up in my life when I was unloading the dishwasher, and I saw her at her son’s wedding. She just showed up again. It's as though she was poking me in the ribs and squawking, come on, let's get on with this.”

A book signing will take place after the presentation.
