The Library Foundation, the Austin Public Library, and BookPeople are thrilled to welcome Andrew Sean Greer to Austin, fresh off his Pulitzer Prize for fiction. He'll be discussing the award-winning book LESS in conversation with novelist Amanda Eyre Ward. Greer will read from the novel, discuss the book, take audience questions, and sign books.
The speaking portion of this event is free & open to the public. If you buy a copy of LESS at BookPeople before the event or at the library on the day of the event, you will receive a signing line ticket, which will grant you priority access in the signing line after the program. Tickets are only available with the purchase of a copy of LESS from BookPeople. All attend...ees will be granted access to the signing line. Attendees who bring books from home may join the line after ticket holders. Books & tickets are now available to pre-order at bookpeople.com. Purchasing a book online automatically assigns you a ticket for the signing. There is no separate «ticket» item to add to your cart. Tickets are lettered. The line for the signing will form according to ticket letter after the author speaks.
ABOUT ANDREW SEAN GREER: Andrew Sean Greer is the bestselling author of five works of fiction, including THE CONFESSIONS OF MAX TIVOLI, which was named a best book of 2004 by the San Francisco Chronicle and the Chicago Tribune. He is the recipient of the Northern California Book Award, the California Book Award, the New York Public Library Young Lions Award, the O Henry award for short fiction, and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Public Library. Greer lives in San Francisco. He has traveled to all of the locations in this novel, but he is only big in Italy.
ABOUT LESS: A struggling novelist travels the world to avoid an awkward wedding in this hilarious Pulitzer Prize-winning novel full of «arresting lyricism and beauty» (New York Times Book Review). «I could not love LESS more.» (Ron Charles, Washington Post) «Andrew Sean Greer's Less is excellent company. It's no less than bedazzling, bewitching and be-wonderful.» (Christopher Buckley, New York Times Book Review)
Who says you can't run away from your problems? You are a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: your boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. You can't say yes--it would be too awkward--and you can't say no--it would look like defeat. On your desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world.
