Event Details

Mysterious and notorious, there is no building in New York City like The Dakota. Tom Barbash directly engages the building’s enigmatic allure and singular history with hiswildly absorbing novel about a son’s drive to help his once-famous father back to late night television stardom in the last months of the 1970s. Wielding trademark emotional acuity, and gleeful wit, Barbash has given us what Pulitzer Prize-winningauthor Jennifer Egan calls “a subtly captivating paean to filial love.”

Tom Barbash is the author of the award-winning novel The Last Good Chance, which was awarded the California Book Award, and the short story collection Stay Up with Me, which was a national bestseller and was nominated for the Folio Prize. His nonfiction book, On Top of the World: Cantor Fitzgerald, Howard Lutnick, and 9/11: A Story of Loss and Renewal, was a New York Times bestseller. He currently teaches in the MFA program at California College of the Arts.

Mechanics' Institute Library & Chess Room

The Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room is an historic membership library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco, California at 57 Post Street. Founded in 1854 to serve the vocational needs of out-of-work gold miners, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker who needs a quiet place to plug in a laptop and do research.
