The Tattered Cover is delighted to welcome four esteemed authors for our annual Writers Respond to Readers event. This full day event brings writers and readers, and book club members, together in an intimate setting to talk about books and writing.
Barbara Delinsky’s novels are character-driven studies of marriage, parenthood, sibling rivalry, and friendship. Her most recent books include Family Tree, The Secret Between Us, and While My Sister Sleeps. Ethiopian born Maaza Mengiste is a Pushcart Prize nominee and the author of the critically acclaimed novel Beneath the Lion’s Gaze. Jayne Anne Phillips’ recent novel Lark & Termite was nominated for a 2009 National Book Award for Fiction. Barb Johnson’s first book, a collection of interlinked stories called More of This World or Maybe Another, was called a “pitch perfect,” “utterly original,” and a “truly exciting debut” by Robert Olen Butler. This event includes morning refreshments to begin the day and a wine and cheese reception to round off the afternoon.
