[CANCELED] PEN Out Loud: Emily St. John Mandel with Samantha Hunt

Emily St John Mandel and Samantha Hunt

UPDATE: Due to concerns about coronavirus, Emily St. John Mandel’s publisher has made the difficult decision to cancel her PEN Out Loud event on March 25. PEN America and the Strand are therefore unable to present her as planned. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Award-winning author Emily St. John Mandel celebrates the release of her newest novel, The Glass Hotel. Following her bestselling PEN/Faulkner finalist novel Station Eleven, Mandel’s latest is an engrossing story that explores tenuous relationships, inadvertent consequences, and white-collar crime. Mandel will read from the novel and have a conversation with bestselling author Samantha Hunt (The Dark, Dark: Stories) about the book’s inception, craft, and the subversive nature of ghosts.

Presented in collaboration with Strand Book Store.
