Book Launch: Helen Phillips presents The Need
In conversation with Rumaan Alam
Reception to follow
Award-winning author & Greenlight neighbor Helen Phillips presents her newest work, The Need, an existential, mind-bending thriller about a woman who grapples with the complex dualities of motherhood after confronting a masked intruder in her home. As the edges of her reality begin to blur, Molly does whatever is necessary to keep her children safe, unearthing other mysteries in the process. The Need is a breathless, cerebral, and transcendent attempt to excavate questions of personal identity, modern motherhood, and the nature of the universe. Fellow neighbor Rumaan Alam, author Rich and Pretty and That Kind of Mother, joins Phillips in conversation, followed by a reception to celebrate the book’s launch.
