Harvard Book Store hosts award-winning author ANN BEATTIE—author of Chilly Scenes of Winter, Perfect Recall, and The State We’re In: Maine Stories—for a discussion of her latest book, The Accomplished Guest: Stories. This is a collection of short stories from authors such as O. Henry and Pushcart.
Surprising and revealing, set along the East Coast from Maine to Key West, ANN BEATTIE’s astutely observed new collection explores unconventional friendships, frustrated loves, mortality, and aging. In some stories, as in life, what begins as a benign social event becomes a situation played for high stakes.
The Accomplished Guest: Stories will be on sale at the event, 20% off.
No ticket purchase necessary for attendance.
