Book Launch: Ann Patchett presents Commonwealth
In conversation with J. Courtney Sullivan
Tickets $30.00 (includes event admission and a book)
Greenlight is thrilled to welcome bestselling author and beloved independent bookseller Ann Patchett back to Brooklyn for the launch of her keenly anticipated seventh novel, Commonwealth. In this absorbing story about two families, broken apart and brought together by divorce and marriage over the course of lifetimes, Patchett brilliantly captures the mistakes and messiness of contemporary life that define us all, in an ambitious and emotionally honest book about the power of family and the unbreakable ties that bind us together. Patchett author of Bel Canto, State of Wonder, Truth & Beauty, and most recently, This is the Story of a Happy Marriage, as well as the proprietor of Nashvilles Parnassus Books talks about her work with Brooklyn author J. Courtney Sullivan, author of the New York Times bestselling novels Commencement, Maine and The Engagements. Book signing to follow.
