Mon, December 14, 2015 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

Lauren Groff’s “dazzling” (Vogue) bestselling novels, Arcadia and The Monsters of Templeton, explore family secrets and small town intrigues in bucolic upstate New York settings. She is the winner of a PEN/O. Henry Award and the Pushcart Prize, and her work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and Harper’s, among many other magazines. Fates and Furies is a decades-spanning story of the secrets that belie the image of a seemingly perfect couple’s successful marriage.

I Was Told There’d Be Cake author Sloane Crosley (Thurber Prize finalist) is a “fountain of observations” (Boston Globe) regarding her run-ins with Portuguese clowns, bears at weddings, and despoiled museum exhibits, amongst many other adventures. Her work has appeared in such disparate publications as the New York Times, Bon Appetit, McSweeney’s, Vice, and Smithsonian. In her first novel, three young friends struggle for purchase amidst the realization that their lives aren’t going quite as planned.
