Jonathan Franzen presents The End of the End of the Earth
Part of BPL Presents

In The End of the End of the Earth, which gathers essays and speeches written mostly in the past five years, Jonathan Franzen returns with renewed vigor to the themes—both human and literary—that have long preoccupied him. Whether exploring his complex relationship with his uncle, recounting his young adulthood in New York, or offering an illuminating look at the global seabird crisis, these pieces contain all the wit and disabused realism that we've come to expect from Franzen. Taken together, these essays trace the progress of a unique and mature mind wrestling with itself, with literature, and with some of the most important issues of our day, made more pressing by the current political milieu. Franzen presents his new book with a talk, Q&A, and book signing.

Each $30 ticket includes admission to the event, as well as a signed hardcover copy of The End of the End of the Earth. Books are distributed at the event.
