Book launch event! Bookshop Santa Cruz is delighted to welcome award-winning author Jonathan Franzen for a discussion and signing of his highly anticipated new novel, Purity. This offsite and ticketed event, which is the launch of his book tour, will take place at Santa Cruz High School Auditorium.
In Purity, Franzen has once again funneled the issues of our age through the drama of one family. The novel follows a young American, Purity Tyler — known by her Dickensian nickname ‘Pip’ — as she searches for the father she never knew. Journeying to South America, she is drawn into the secrets of her own family past and the secrets of state, when she crosses paths with a charismatic internet hacker.
