LOCAL>> Women Lit presents Ann Patchett

The Ties that Bind: Ann Patchett on Family, Fortune, and the Search for Self

We are partnering with the Bay Area Book Festival to present a virtual event with bestselling author (and bookstore owner) Ann Patchett

Visit the Book Festival’s site for ticket information.

Ann Patchett’s sweeping, emotionally piercing novels hit that sweet spot where literary prestige meets blockbuster mainstream success (millions of copies sold).  With The Dutch House, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Patchett is at her peak.

This “engrossing, warmhearted book” (NPR), a family saga spanning five decades, tells the story of a brother and sister whose deep bond and secret-filled past is haunted by the legacy of an ornate mansion, the “Dutch house,” that was the site of childhood, and later, of their exile. Patchett, who also runs Parnassus Books, an iconic indie bookstore in her native Nashville, is known as a literary citizen who speaks her mind with refreshing and down-to-earth brilliance.

Join Ann Patchett and Women Lit in a live event where you’ll have the chance to engage with her in real time. Please submit your questions for Ann when you purchase your ticket, and she will answer as many as she can. As The New York Times Book Review said, “Expect miracles when you read Ann Patchett’s fiction.” We expect no less from our special experience with this author who will make your day with her warmth and wisdom!

Women Lit members may reserve a free ticket and will have the option to order a signed copy of The Dutch House after signing in to their account. If you would like to join Women Lit, please sign up here.

Each ticket includes private access to the event recording for 10 days following the live event.
