Carol Edgarian presents Vera
In conversation with Jennifer Egan
Carol Edgarian, bestselling author of Three Stages of Amazement and Rise the Euphrates, presents her new novel Vera, a cinematic and deeply enthralling adventure set in 1906 San Francisco, a city leveled by quake and fire, greed and corruption. As the city burns and looters vie with the injured, orphaned, and starving, it falls to Vera, an uncommonly resourceful fifteen-year-old, to unite an unlikely new family of survivors. Together they navigate a world reborn in the wake of disaster. Told with unflinching candor and wit, Vera celebrates the audacious fortitude of its young heroine and marks a stunning achievement by an inventive and generous writer. Greenlight neighbor and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jennifer Egan joins Edgarian in conversation at this virtual book talk!
