NYC Book Launch: Julia Phillips presents Disappearing Earth
In conversation with Philip Gourevitch
Reception to follow

In Julia Phillips’ highly anticipated new novel, two girls – sisters, eight and eleven – go missing one August afternoon from the shoreline of the Kamchatka peninsula at the northeastern edge of Russia. Taking us through a year in Kamchatka, Disappearing Earth enters with astonishing emotional acuity the worlds of a cast of richly drawn characters, all connected by the crime. Spellbinding, moving – evoking a fascinating region on the other side of the world – this suspenseful and haunting story announces the debut of a profoundly gifted writer. Phillips presents her book in conversation with Philip Gourevitch, author of the award-winning We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families, followed by a wine reception.
