Book Launch: Adam O’Fallon Price presents The Hotel Neversink
Conversation and musical performance with J. Robert Lennon
Reception to follow
Adam O’Fallon Price (The Grand Tour) creates a gripping portrait of a Jewish family in the Catskills over the course of a century with his new novel The Hotel Neversink. The magnificent Hotel Neversink is the crown jewel of the Catskills, a sprawling resort of unparalleled luxury that hosts athletes, actors, and even presidents. Owned and operated by the immigrant Sikorsky family, the hotel is a realization of their wildest American dream. But a series of disappearances will brand the lives of three generations of Sikorskys. With an unnerving eye and prose both comic and tragic, O'Fallon Price details one man's struggle for greatness no matter the cost, and a long-held family secret that threatens to undo it all. Novelist and musician J. Robert Lennon joins O’Fallon Price in conversation (and for a special musical performance!), followed by a reception to celebrate the book’s launch.
