Staff favorite Garth Stein, the bestselling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain, will join us to read and sign copies of his long-awaited new novel. In A Sudden Light, a boy trying to save his parents’ marriage uncovers a vast legacy of family secrets.
Longbourn explores the world of Pride and Prejudice from the perspective of the household servants, who toil away at backbreaking work while the ladies of the house chase their fortunes. It’s a lush retelling that focuses smartly on social inequality but manages to also be utterly beautiful and escapist. Save this book for a good rainy day. It’s the kind of fiction you won’t want to leave behind.
