Brookline Booksmith welcomes Jeff VanderMeer on May 1st at 7pm for a reading from his new book “Borne,” out from Farrar, Straus, and Giroux on April 25th, 2017. Book signing to follow.
In Borne, the epic new novel from Jeff VanderMeer, author of the acclaimed, bestselling Souther Reach Trilogy, a young woman named Rachel survives as a scavenger in a ruined, dangerous city of the near future. From one of her scavenging missions, Rachel brings home Borne, and quickly feels a growing attachment to Borne, a protectiveness that she can ill-afford. And yet, little as she understands what or who Borne may be, she cannot give him up, even as Borne grows and changes.
This event is free and open to the public.
