Zadie Smith presents her novel NW
NOTE: This event begins at 8:00 PM instead of our usual 7:30 PM.
Greenlight is honored to host internationally acclaimed and award-winning novelist Zadie Smith, author of White Teeth and On Beauty, to present her brand-new novel NW. The story of three adults who grew up in the Caldwell housing estate in Northwest London, the novel brilliantly depicts the modern urban zone—familiar to city dwellers everywhere—in a tragicomic novel as mercurial as the city itself. From private houses to public parks, at work and at play, in this delicate, devastating novel of encounters, the main streets hide the back alleys, and taking the high road can sometimes lead to a dead end. Smith will read from her novel and answer audience questions before signing books.
Please note: Customers who purchase Smith's new novel NW from Greenlight will be given priority in the signing line. Upon purchase (either online or in store), each customer will be assigned a pass with a "group number" indicating his/her place in the signing line. Passes will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Books and passes may be picked up on or after the book's publication date, September 4th. Customers without passes (did not buy their copy from Greenlight) must wait at the end of the line. Smith will sign up to 3 books per customer, including backlist titles.
