Cara Hoffman presents Running
In conversation with Rae Meadows
Introduction by Ira Silverberg
From Cara Hoffman, the critically acclaimed author of Be Safe I Love You and So Much Pretty (both of which she presented at Greenlight) comes Running, a dark, breathtaking novel of love, friendship, and survival set in Athens’ red light district in the late 1980s. Running follows the lives of three friends and lovers who meet while working as runners: riding trains looking for tourists to lure back to the four-dollar-a-night Hotel Olympos. Hoffman began writing Running over twenty-five years ago when she was working as a runner herself. Hoffman talks about her work with fellow novelist Rae Meadows (and fellow former runner), author of four novels including the recent I Will Send Rain. The conversation is introduced by Cara’s editor at Simon & Schuster, publishing great Ira Silverberg, former editor-in-chief of Grove and longtime literary agent.
