Ann Patchett, This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage: Special Offsite Event

Monday, November 18, 2013 - 7:00pm


Fantastic and bestselling author Ann Patchett (Bel Canto, State of Wonder, Truth & Beauty) will join us to read and sign copies of her new book, This is the Story of a Happy Marriage. Blending literature and memoir, Patchett examines her deepest commitments—to writing, family, friends, dogs, books, and her husband—creating a resonant portrait of a life.

This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage takes us into the very real world of Ann Patchett’s life. Stretching from her childhood to the present day, from a disastrous early marriage to a later happy one, it covers a multitude of topics, including relationships with family and friends, and charts the hard work and joy of writing, and the unexpected thrill of opening a bookstore.

As she shares stories of the people, places, ideals, and art to which she has remained indelibly committed, Patchett brings into focus the large experiences and small moments that have shaped her as a daughter, wife, and writer.

Ms. Patchett is a huge favorite of our staff, is a phenomenal advocate for independent bookstores, and is fantastic speaker. This is an event you don't want to miss!

Watch Ann Patchett's appearance on The Colbert Report.

TICKETS: $30.45, includes one ticket to the event & one copy of This is the Story of a Happy Marriage. This event will take place at Santa Cruz High. Open seating.
