Event description

Description

Baby of the Family is a wry and addictive debut about a modern-day American dynasty and its unexpected upheaval when the patriarch wills his dwindling fortune to his youngest, adopted son—setting off a chain of events that unearth family secrets and test long-held definitions of love and family.

Maura Roosevelt grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts, but has since called New York City and Los Angeles home. Roosevelt holds a Master of Fine Arts from New York University in fiction writing, and a Bachelor of Art from Harvard University. Between 2012 and 2017, Roosevelt lectured in NYU’s Expository Writing Program, teaching Writing the Essay. Roosevelt has spent the past few years teaching writing at the University of Southern California. Roosevelt's work has been published in The Nation and Vol. 1 Brooklyn. Baby of the Family is Roosevelt's first novel.
