Upcoming Event
Monday, October 23, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Egan won the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award for her tour de force of style and storytelling, A Visit from the Goon Squad. Her fifth novel combines history with elements of noir to trace the life of Anna Kerrigan, whose coming-of-age coincides with the Great Depression and the Second World War. When Anna’s father disappears after a meeting with the wealthy Dexter Styles, she becomes the family’s mainstay and, during the war, works as the first female diver at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. A second meeting with the cryptic Mr. Styles leads Anna to start to unravel the dangerous secrets surrounding his role in her life.
