New Voices in Fiction: SOPHIE CHEN KELLER and “The Luster of Lost Things”
Harvard Book Store and GrubStreet welcome debut author SOPHIE CHEN KELLER for a discussion of her book, The Luster of Lost Things: A Novel—a fable-like tale in which a boy with an uncanny ability to find lost objects must embark on his most important search yet.
There’s only one place in the world that lonely twelve-year-old Walter Lavender, Jr. feels at home: The Lavenders, his mother’s unusual West Village dessert shop where meringues scud through displays like clouds, marzipan dragons breathe actual fire, and the airy angel food cake makes customers pounds lighter. When the mysterious and magical Book at the heart of the shop vanishes and a landlord threatens closure, it’s up to Walter to find the Book and save the shop. Despite—or because of—a communication disorder that renders him speechless and friendless, Walter has a special ability to find lost things.
This event is part of the New Voices in Fiction event series presented jointly by GrubStreet and Harvard Book Store.
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 entry.
