Remember that time your dad/best friend/roommate gave you a book that opened up a new world to you? Or how you thought you’d found “The One” only to be left questioning everything after he gave you a copy of The Fountainhead?
Join us for an evening with Jen Adams, author of The Books They Gave Me: True Stories of Life and Love.
Adams has collected 200 stories about books received from loved ones: the teenager whose misguided, much-older boyfriend gave her a copy of Lolita; the couple who confessed their love through Vikram Seth’s A Suitable Boy; the English tutor whose gift of Great Expectations helped realize his student’s potential.
So mark November 27 on your calendar, and come to the Bohemian Hall for a conversation with Jen Adams about the art of giving books this holiday season.
Please come join me!
