Jane Smiley discusses and signs Some Luck
Vroman's Bookstore, Tuesday, October 28 at 7pm
Follow the Langdon family of Denby, Iowa over the course of 30 transformative years in American history. Each chapter in Some luck depicts a single year, beginning in 1920 with Walter Langdon's return from WWI, through the early 1950's when the United States faces great social and economic change. Following the Langdons, the reader begins to know them as a real family, feel for their ups and downs, and experience the changing American landscape with them. Some luck is the first book in a trilogy that will span an entire century of American history.

Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted. Save your Vroman's receipt; it will be checked when you enter the signing line.

Location: Street: 695 E. Colorado Blvd City: Pasadena, Province: California Postal Code: 91101 Country: United States (added from IndieBound)
