Book Launch: Joshua Henkin presents Morningside Heights
In conversation with Julie Orringer
Joshua Henkin, award-winning author of Swimming Across the Hudson, Matrimony, and The World Without You, comes to Greenlight (virtually!) to share his new book, Morningside Heights, a sweeping and compassionate novel about a marriage surviving hardship. Something is wrong with Pru’s husband Spence. The Great Man can’t concentrate; he falls asleep reading The New York Review of Books. With their daughter away at medical school, Pru must struggle on her own. One day, feeling particularly isolated, Pru meets a man, and the possibility of new romance blooms. Meanwhile, Spence’s estranged son from his first marriage has come back into their lives, and he may be his father’s last, best hope. Tender, powerful, and big-hearted, Morningside Heights is about the love between women and men and children and parents, about the things we give up in the face of adversity, about what endures when life turns out differently from what we thought we signed up for. Julie Orringer, Greenlight neighbor and award-winning author of The Invisible Bridge, How to Breathe Underwater, and The Flight Portfolio, joins Henkin in conversation for this virtual book launch!
