Monday, 7:00 pm EDT September 16, 2024

The Center for Fiction

The Center for Fiction is thrilled to welcome acclaimed novelist Zadie Smith to celebrate the paperback launch of her latest novel, The Fraud, a kaleidoscopic work of historical fiction depicting the legal trial that divided Victorian England. Andrew Bogle, a formerly enslaved new arrival to London finds himself as the star witness against a purported heir to a sizeable estate and title—and realizes his future depends on telling the right story. The Fraud is a dazzling novel about truth and fiction, Jamaica and Britain, fraudulence and authenticity, and the mystery of “other people.” Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in conversation with Smith during an audience Q&A. Smith will sign books after the event.
