Grant Ginder presents: Let’s Not Do That Again 
In conversation with David Ebershoff 

Bestselling author and Greenlight’s own neighbor Grant Ginder presents his newest novel, a smart and cutting comedy about politics, family, and dysfunction. Congresswoman Nancy Harrison, who inherited her seat after her husband’s accidental death, is now running for the U.S. Senate. She's determined to win, but there's just one problem: her grown children. Hopeful romantic Nick used to be his mother’s “fixer” but is now an NYU professor flailing in his attempts to write a musical based on the life of Joan Didion called ‘Hello to All That!’ His sister, Greta, is smart, pretty, and completely unmotivated; she allows her life to pass by like the shoppers at the Apple store in Brooklyn where she works. But Greta also has a dangerous secret—one that explodes into the open amidst a right-wing protest in Paris. In a desperate attempt to save her political future, not to mention her daughter, Nancy dispatches Nick to wrest Greta free from the seductions of Paris and bring her back to New York before it’s too late. Keeping company with Knives Out, Veep, and Succession, Ginder—formerly a political speechwriter—has written a novel that will make you both cringe and howl with laughter. He and acclaimed author, editor and also a Greenlight neighbor, David Ebershoff (The Danish Girl) convene at our Fort Greene store to discuss the trials, perils, and pleasures of crafting comedy during dark, bewildering times.
