PEN/Faulkner presents the fresh voices of two first-time novelists. Chad Harbach’s The Art of Fielding is a fresh, exhilarating, and poignantly non-sentimental new American baseball story. Karen Russell’s Swamplandia! was featured in The New Yorker’s fiction issue and was also a Pulitzer Prize finalist in a year when no prize was awarded. Reception and book signing to follow.
Event begins at 7:30PM
Presented by: PEN/Faulkner
