David Duchovny and Jess Walter (The Cold Millions) are back together, this time to talk about Duchovny’s newest novel Truly Like Lightning, a meditation on family, religion, and environment set in the western California desert oasis near Joshua Tree. Duchovny will perform a portion of the novel, followed by a conversation between the two friends. If you missed their wide-ranging conversation last fall, you can find it here.

Tickets to this virtual event include a copy of Truly Like Lightning, which will be released on February 2, 2021. Books will include a signed bookplate.
