Book launch: James Frankie Thomas presents 
Idlewild: A Novel
In conversation with Sarah Thankam Mathews
Wine reception to follow!

Idlewild is a tiny, artsy Quaker high school in lower Manhattan. Students call their teachers by their first names, there are no grades, and every day begins with 20 minutes of contemplative silence in the Meetinghouse. It is during one of those meetings that an airplane hits the Twin Towers. For two Idlewild outcasts, 9/11 serves as the first day of an intense, 18-month friendship that ultimately drives them to make choices that they'll regret for the rest of their lives. A queer, trans, and early-Internet twist on the Manhattan prep school novel, please join us at Greenlight Bookstore as we celebrate the book launch of Idlewild by debut author, James Frankie Thomas, in conversation with novelist Sarah Thankam Mathews, complete with wine reception.
