Event description
Bestselling novelist Ann Patchett returns to Danville and Rakestraw Books to share her marvelous new novel The Dutch House.

About this Event

Ann Patchett, the New York Times bestselling author of Commonwealth and State of Wonder, returns with her most powerful novel to date: a richly moving story that explores the indelible bond between two siblings, the house of their childhood, and a past that will not let them go.

“'Do you think it’s possible to ever see the past as it actually was?’ I asked my sister. We were sitting in her car, parked in front of the Dutch House in the broad daylight of early summer.”

The Dutch House is the story of a paradise lost, a tour de force that digs deeply into questions of inheritance, love and forgiveness, of how we want to see ourselves and of who we really are. Filled with suspense, you may read it quickly to find out what happens, but what happens to Danny and Maeve will stay with you for a very long time.

Rakestraw Books is delighted to invite you to an evening with bestselling novelist (and fellow bookseller!) Ann Patchett on Thursday, 17 October 2019 at 7 PM as we celebrate the publication of The Dutch House. Tickets (a signed copy of The Dutch House is included) are required for this special event.
