About this event

The bestselling author of A Gentleman in Moscow and Rules of Civility and master of absorbing, sophisticated fiction returns with a stylish and propulsive novel set in 1950s America

Join us alongside bestselling author Amor Towles as he discusses about his new novel The Lincoln Highway. Your ticket includes a copy of The Lincoln Highway. The first 100 people will receive copy of the book signed by Amor Towles.

In June, 1954, eighteen-year-old Emmett Watson is driven home to Nebraska by the warden of the juvenile work farm where he has just served fifteen months for involuntary manslaughter. His mother long gone, his father recently deceased, and the family farm foreclosed upon by the bank, Emmett's intention is to pick up his eight-year-old brother, Billy, and head to California where they can start their lives anew. But when the warden drives away, Emmett discovers that two friends from the work farm have hidden themselves in the trunk of the warden's car. Together, they have hatched an altogether different plan for Emmett's future, one that will take them all on a fateful journey in the opposite direction—to the City of New York.

Spanning just ten days and told from multiple points of view, Towles's third novel will satisfy fans of his multi-layered literary styling while providing them an array of new and richly imagined settings, characters, and themes.

During this special Rakestraw Books "Live at Home" event on Thursday, 7 October 2021 at 6 PM (PT), author Amor Towles will be joined in conversation by bestselling novelist John Grisham.

Please note: If you require your copy of The Lincoln Highway to be shipped to you, we will contact you for postage.

Rakestraw Books is delighted to be presenting this extraordinary event in partnership with several fine independent bookshops across the West Coast: Warkwick's in La Jolla; Elliott Bay in Seattle; Auntie's in Spokane; and Diesel in Brentwood and Del Mar. If you live in the neighborhood of one of these shops, we encourage you to purchase your ticket from your local!
