Tuesday, July 30, 7:30 PMSusan Choi presents My Education
Susan Choi, the Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner Award-nominated author of A Person of Interest and American Woman (and a Greenlight neighbor), returns this summer with a brilliant new novel, My Education. The novel follows a graduate student at a prestigious eastern university who becomes the teaching assistant for an imperious man of scandalous noteworthiness and sinister attractiveness. By turns erotic and completely catastrophic, the misadventures that follow demonstrate what can happen when the chasm between desire and duty is too wide to bridge. Fellow author Jennifer Egan writes, “My Education is a raw, wild, hurtling foray into the tangled realms of sexuality and self-knowledge. Susan Choi's vast gifts as a novelist are all on display, with her restlessness, curiosity and sheer daring leading the way." Join us in celebrating a fiercely talented and acclaimed local author.
