Harvard Book Store hosts ALLEGRA GOODMAN for a discussion of her latest novel, The Chalk Artist.
A tender affair and the redemptive power of art are at the core of The Chalk Artist, from National Book Award finalist Allegra Goodman, who The Wall Street Journal calls “a romantic realist who dazzles with wit [and] compassion.”
Allegra Goodman’s novels include The Cookbook Collector and Intuition. Her fiction has appeared in The New Yorker and The Best American Short Stories. She is a winner of the Whiting Writer’s Award and a fellowship at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. She lives with her family in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
This book will be for sale at the event for 20% off. There will also be a signing after the event.
No tickets required for attendance.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
