Hannah Pittard, "Reunion"
The Book Cellar, Wednesday, October 22 at 7pm
Hannah Pittard, author of the acclaimed The Fates Will Find Their Way, visits the Book Cellar to celebrate her second novel, Reunion.

Sitting on a plane five minutes before her flight is set to take off, Kate Pulaski, failed screenwriter and newly failed wife with scarcely a hundred dollars to her name, learns that her estranged father has killed himself. It’s a voicemail, and as she listens to it a second time, more shocked than saddened by the news, she realizes her speakerphone is on and everyone around her has just heard the news as well. With her marriage falling apart, returning to her birthplace along with her many half-siblings and most of her father's five former wives – a striking reminder of his infidelity – is the last thing Kate wants to do. But the one certain thing in her life is Kate’s rock-solid relationship with her siblings, so when they ask her to join them in Atlanta, for a final farewell, she reluctantly agrees. Written with huge heart and bracing wit, Reunion takes place over the following four days, as family secrets are revealed, personal foibles are exposed, and Kate – an inveterate liar looking for a way to come clean – slowly begins to acknowledge the overwhelming similarities between herself and the man she never thought she'd claim as an influence, much less a father. As a thirty-something in a stalled career, wrestling with issues of debt, fidelity, honesty and just starting to come to terms with a future nothing like what she imagined, Kate is a relatable mess. As she reassesses what defines family, Kate starts to see how the certainty of knowing someone completely can blind you to the ways they change over time. Hannah Pittard's "engaging and vigorous" (Chicago Tribune) prose masterfully illuminates the problems that can divide modern families – and the ties that prove impossible to break.
