Book Launch: Ben Dolnick presents The Ghost Notebooks
In conversation with Garth Risk Hallberg
Wine reception to follow
Greenlight neighbor and acclaimed novelist Ben Dolnick, author of At the Bottom of Everything, launches his latest book, a supernatural story of love, ghosts, and madness. When a newly engaged couple move from the city to a tiny upstate town to manage the Wright Historic House – a museum dedicated to an obscure 19th century philosopher, who attempted to create an encyclopedia of all possible human sensations – they believe they’ve finally found the change they’ve craved. But when an unexpected tragedy wrests the couple apart, they’ll discover the hidden legacy of Wright House: a man driven wild with grief, and a spirit aching for home. James Hannaham calls The Ghost Notebooks “terrific, seemingly effortless… So many richly imagined characters that it calls to mind an updated Fitzgerald." Dolnick launches his latest novel in conversation with Garth Risk Hallberg, author of City on Fire. A signing, Q&A, and reception follow to celebrate the book’s launch.
