Simon Tolkien & Amor Towles

Friday, February 10, 7:30 p.m.

Inspired by the experiences of his grandfather J. R. R. Tolkien during World War I, Simon Tolkien delivers a perfectly rendered novel rife with class tension, period detail, and stirring action. No Man’s Land follows Adam Raine through his impoverished childhood, falling in love, and the outbreak of war that threatens to tear everything apart. Also steeped in early 20th-century history, A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles features wealthy Count Alexander Rostov, who has been sentenced to house arrest in a Moscow hotel as punishment for writing a poem deemed incendiary by the Bolsheviks. But despite his confinement, the count lives an adventurous life.

Chris Bohjalian & Katie Kitamura

Wednesday, February 15, 7:30 p.m.

New York Times bestselling author Chris Bohjalian returns with a suspenseful story about a family’s lies, loss, and buried desire. In his latest novel, Sleepwalker, wife and mother Annalee vanishes from her bed one night. The mystery surrounding her disappearance becomes increasingly complicated, conjuring the strange and mysterious world of parasomnia, a place somewhere between dreaming and wakefulness. Katie Kitamura‘s novel A Separation is a mesmerizing, psychologically taut story about secrecy, intimacy and infidelity, and the gulf that divides a marriage. Kitamura is being hailed as a major talent by Karl Ove Knausgaard and many other acclaimed authors; Rivka Galchen says “Kitamura combines the calm complexity of Joseph Conrad with the pacing and reveal of Patricia Highsmith.”
