Event description

Description

Celebrated fiction authors Celeste Ng and Amor Towles come together for a night of conversation to celebrate the paperback releases of their bestselling novels, Little Fires Everywhere and A Gentleman in Moscow, both set to become major television series.

Little Fires Everywhere is a riveting novel that traces the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. The book explores the weight of secrets, the ferocious pull of motherhood, and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster. Both Little Fires Everywhere and Ng’s debut novel, Everything I Never Told You, were named Best Book of the Year by The Washington Post, NPR, People, and many more.

A Gentleman in Moscow is a transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel. Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another, this singular novel casts a spell as it relates the count's endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose. A Gentleman in Moscow was named one of the best books of 2016 by the Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, and the San Francisco Chronicle, among others.

This event will include a book signing.
