Offsite Event: Brooklyn Voices Series at St. Joseph’s College
Book Launch: Ann Patchett presents Commonwealth
In conversation with J. Courtney Sullivan
A Brooklyn Book Festival Bookends event
Tickets $30.00 (includes event admission and book)
Greenlight is thrilled to welcome bestselling author and beloved independent bookseller Ann Patchett back to Brooklyn for the launch of her keenly anticipated seventh novel, Commonwealth. In this absorbing story about two families, broken apart and brought together by divorce and marriage over the course of lifetimes, Patchett brilliantly captures the mistakes and messiness of contemporary life, the power of family, and the unbreakable ties that bind us together. Patchett – author of Bel Canto, State of Wonder, Truth & Beauty, and most recently, This is the Story of a Happy Marriage, as well as the proprietor of Nashville’s Parnassus Books – talks about her work with Brooklyn author J. Courtney Sullivan, author of the New York Times bestselling novels Commencement, Maine and The Engagements. Book signing to follow.
Each $30 ticket includes admission to the event, as well as a hardcover copy of Commonwealth; books are distributed at the event.
Please note: purchase of this book does not include a seat at the September 13 event. You must purchase a ticket through the Brown Paper Tickets event page to secure an event seat and book. Books may be ordered separately from event tickets and signing requests are accepted.
