Join us as bestselling author Meg Wolitzer is interviewed on stage about her new novel, The Interestings and Jim Lynch talks about his latest book, Truth Like the Sun.
Meg Wolitzer's novel, The Interestings is wide in scope, ambitious, and populated by complex characters who come together and apart in a changing New York City. It explores the meaning of talent; the nature of envy; the roles of class, art, money, and power; and how all of it can shift and tilt precipitously.
Meg Wolitzer's previous novels include The Uncoupling; The Ten-Year Nap; The Position; and The Wife. Wolitzer's short fiction has appeared in The Best American Short Stories and The Pushcart Prize.

Truth Like the Sun - A classic and hugely entertaining political novel, the cat-and-mouse story of urban intrigue in Seattle both in 1962, when Seattle hosted the World's Fair, and in 2001, after its transformation in the Microsoft gold rush.
