Book Launch: Rick Moody presents The Long Accomplishment: A Memoir of Hope and Struggle in Matrimony
In conversation with Amy Hempel
Reception to follow

Rick Moody, the award-winning author of The Ice Storm, shares the harrowing true story of the first year of his second marriage—an eventful month-by-month account—in The Long Accomplishment: A Memoir of Hope and Struggle in Matrimony. To Moody’s astonishment, matrimony turns out to be the site of strength in hard times, a vessel infinitely tougher and more durable than any boat these two participants would have traveled by alone. Love buoys the couple, lifting them above their hardships, and the reader is buoyed along with them. Moody presents his book in conversation with short story writer and author of Sing to It Amy Hempel, followed by a reception to celebrate the launch.
