Emma Straub - Modern Lovers

Saturday, June 18, 2016 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Zoe, Andrew, and Elizabeth did all the cool things in college, from forming a rock band to experimenting with drugs, lovers, and identity. Now nearing fifty, the three are parents and homeowners, and they’re a little unnerved as they watch their own children growing independent and rebellious. As she did in her previous novels The Vacationers and Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures, Straub mingles insight with humor, evoking the exhilaration of youth, the bittersweet recognitions of middle age, and the mainstays of friendship at all stages of life.

Straub will be in conversation with Tayla Burney, a producer with WAMU’s Kojo Nnamdi Show.

This event is part of the WAMU in Your Bookstore series.
