Wednesday, 7:00 pm EDT March 20, 2024

The Center for Fiction
Members Lounge

We are thrilled to welcome Roxana Robinson (Cost) to our Members Lounge for an intimate conversation and reading from her powerful new novel, Leaving. In Robinson’s boldest work to date, two former lovers run into each other forty years after their breakup and a passion ignites—threatening the foundations of the lives they’ve built apart. Robinson demonstrates her “trademark gifts as an intelligent, sensitive analyst of family life” (Wendy Smith, Chicago Tribune) in an engrossing exploration of the vows we make to one another, the tensile relationships between parents and their children, and what we owe to others and ourselves. Author, journalist, and radio host Kurt Andersen (Evil Geniuses, Fantasyland) joins Robinson for a rich discussion on Leaving, life, and literary craft. With a smaller audience, relaxed setting, and extended time for readers’ questions, this is sure to be a special evening.

Space for this event will be limited and the price of admission includes a copy of Leaving with your choice of a glass of wine or a non-alcoholic beverage from our Café & Bar.
