On Wednesday, June 15 from 7:30-8:30pm, Pulitzer Prize-winner Jennifer Egan will be in conversation with Abigail Pogrebin about her latest book, The Candy House, the “sibling novel” to A Visit From the Goon Squad. The event will take place at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan at 334 Amsterdam Ave (at 76th Street), and Egan will be signing copies of her book following the talk!
The Candy House is a bold, brilliant imagining of a world that is moments away. Jennifer Egan takes to stunning new heights her “deeply intuitive forays into the darker aspects of our technology-driven, image-saturated culture” (Vogue). The Candy House delivers an absolutely extraordinary combination of fierce, exhilarating intelligence and heart.
Jennifer Egan is the author of six previous books of fiction: Manhattan Beach, winner of the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction; A Visit from the Goon Squad, which won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award; The Keep; the story collection Emerald City; Look at Me, a National Book Award Finalist; and The Invisible Circus. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Harper’s Magazine, Granta, McSweeney’s, and The New York Times Magazine. Her website is JenniferEgan.com.
