Jana Bibi returns! Rebecca Makkai returns! Waldo...? July 23rd, 2014

 Tonight! (Thursday, July 24, 7 PM)
Betsy Woodman joins us to talk about (and sign copies of) the third installment in her Jana Bibi series--Emeralds Included!  ... Betsy is always a fascinating guest. Even if you haven't read the first two books, you'll want to join us for a wide-ranging conversation about different cultures, music, travel, and language. Learn more here.

Next week! ( Wednesday, July 30, 7 PM)
Rebecca Makkai joins us to present her new novel, The Hundred-Year House--a dazzlingly original, mordantly witty novel about the secrets of an old-money family and their turn-of-the-century estate, Laurelfield. We hope you'll remember Rebecca as the author of one of our best sellers over the last few years, The Borrower, in which Lucy Hull, a children’s librarian in Hannibal, Missouri, finds herself both kidnapper and kidnapped when her favorite patron, ten-year-old Ian Drake, runs away from home.
"Rarely is a first novel as smart and engaging and learned and funny and moving as The Borrower." —Richard Russo
