We are delighted to present, for the first time at BBF, Elizabeth Strout, who has created some of the most memorable female characters in recent memory. Her 2009 Pulitzer Prize–winning novel Olive Kitteridge was praised by the Pulitzer committee for its “cumulative emotional wallop” and for the title character, Olive, “blunt, flawed, and fascinating.” Now, in a similarly structured volume of thirteen interconnected stories, Strout brings the irascible Olive back in Olive, Again, with all of the poignancy and emotional acuity of the first book. Come hear Elizabeth Strout in conversation with hometown favorite Andre Dubus III, author of Gone So Long, for a memorable fiction keynote session. Sponsored by Bookforum. Buy your copy of Olive, Again on-site before the session and get priority seating in the front of the venue!
