Novelists in Conversation
Rosecrans Baldwin presents The Last Kid Left
Daniel Riley presents Fly Me

Greenlight brings together two exciting contemporary authors as they present their newest novels and discuss their work in conversation. Rosecrans Baldwin presents The Last Kid Left, a story about two teenagers, dismantled by circumstances and rotten luck, who are desperate to believe that love is enough to save them. A car smashes into a sculpture of a giant cowgirl, and the police find two bodies in the trunk. 19-year-old Nick is arrested for murder, while his girlfriend Emily is nearly consumed by a public hunger for every lurid detail, accurate or not, as details of the crime rip across the internet. Dan Riley presents his debut novel, Fly Me. The year is 1972, and the beaches of Los Angeles are the center of the world. Suzy Whitman is new to beach-town Sela del Mar, and new to the dubious glamour and offbeat pleasures of being a stewardess for Grand Pacific Airlines. Motivated by a temporary escape from her past and a new taste for danger and belonging, Suzy falls into a drug-trafficking scheme that clashes perilously with the skyjacking epidemic of the day. Baldwin and Riley read from their work, followed by a discussion and Q&A.
