JAMI ATTENBURG: All Grown Up

March 10, 2017 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Harvard Book Store welcomes the New York Times–bestselling author of The Middlesteins JAMI ATTENBERG for a discussion of her latest novel, All Grown Up.

Everyone around Andrea Burn seems to have an entirely different idea of what it means to be an adult: her best friend, Indigo, is getting married; her brother—who miraculously seems unscathed by their shared tumultuous childhood—and sister-in-law are having a hoped-for baby; and her friend Matthew continues to wholly devote himself to making dark paintings at the cost of being flat broke.

But when Andrea’s niece finally arrives, born with a heartbreaking ailment, the Bern family is forced to reexamine what really matters. Will this drive them together or tear them apart? Told in gut-wrenchingly honest, mordantly comic vignettes, All Grown Up is a breathtaking display of Attenberg’s power as a storyteller, a whip-smart examination of one woman’s life, lived entirely on her own terms.

This event is free; no tickets are required.
