Hannah Tinti - The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley

Upcoming Event
Friday, April 7, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Tinti’s second novel, set in Olympus, Massachusetts, and spanning America from the Adirondacks to Alaska, is a road trip, an epic, and a moving portrait of a father and daughter. Samuel and his teenage daughter Loo return to his wife’s hometown to make a new life after her death, but the past keeps interfering. Why is Loo kept away from her grandmother? What really lies behind the twelve scars—gunshot wounds—her father bears? And how, exactly, did her mother die? Tinti, founder of the literary journal One Story, won immediate acclaim as a daring and accomplished storyteller with the short story collection Animal Crackers. Her debut novel, The Good Thief, featured orphans, tall tales, and adventures, and garnered the Center for Fiction’s First Novel Prize and the American Library Association’s Alex Award.

Tinti will be in conversation with author Tania James, author of The Tusk That Did the Damage.
