Kazuo Ishiguro presents Klara and the Sun
In conversation with Rumaan Alam
Presented in partnership with the 92nd Street Y
Tickets $15–$45

Kazuo Ishiguro–author of Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day–discusses Klara and the Sun, his first new novel since winning the Nobel Prize. Set in the near future, Klara is told through the eyes of an Artificial Friend (AF), a humanlike robot designed to be a child’s companion. It is “a surprising parable about love, humanity, and science”, writes Publishers Weekly. “As with Ishiguro’s other works, the rich inner reflections of his protagonists offer big takeaways. Klara’s quiet but astute observations of human nature land with profound gravity.”

Access-only tickets ($15) include access to the event; book-bundled tickets ($45) include a hardcover copy of Klara and the Sun (shipping available within the US only). The first 250 book-bundled ticket purchasers will receive a signed bookplate. Ticketholders will receive an exclusive login link preceding the event.
