Celeste Ng presents Little Fires Everywhere
In conversation with Mira Jacob
Celeste Ng presents her latest novel, following the success of her award-winning, New York Times bestselling debut Everything I Never Told You. Little Fires Everywhere is a riveting novel about idyllic American town Shaker Heights and the intertwined fates of some of its residents: the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. When a fraught custody battle concerning a Chinese-American baby dramatically divides the town, these characters are forced to grapple with questions of parenthood and privilege, race and identity, at unexpected and devastating costs. Jodi Picoult says, “Celeste Ng dissects a microcosm of American society just when we need to see it beneath the microscope.” Ng presents her work in conversation with writer Mira Jacob, author of The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing, followed by a signing and Q&A.
