Calendar

Format: 2/24/17

Chris Cleave & Jennifer Ryan

Monday, March 6, 7:30 p.m.

Chris Cleave’s instant New York Times bestseller, Everyone Brave Is Forgiven, is an unforgettable novel about three lives entangled during World War II, and is inspired by the real-life love letters between Cleave’s grandparents. People named it a Book of the Week and said it is told “with dazzling prose, sharp English wit, and compassion…a powerful portrait of war’s effects on those who fight and those left behind.” A historical novel based on Jennifer Ryan’s grandmother’s stories of World War II, The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir follows the paths of five women as World War II forces them to defy their vicar’s stuffy edict to shutter the church’s choir in the absence of men and instead “carry on singing.”

George Saunders

Wednesday, March 8, 7:30 p.m.

In his highly anticipated first novel, National Book Award nominee George Saunders delivers a captivating tale about death, grief, and the power of familial love. Set at the dawn of the Civil War, Lincoln in the Bardo begins with President Lincoln’s son, Willie, falling ill and ultimately being laid to rest. Saunders charts the events of that evening, in which Willie finds himself in purgatory (what is known in Tibetan culture as the bardo). Saunders received the MacArthur Fellowship in 2006.
