The Ivy Bookshop - Back Patio, 5928 Falls Rd, Baltimore, MD 21209
Not Feature Event
By the Author:
Join us to celebrate the latest novel by Lisa Gornick, ANA TURNS, a story unspooling over the 24 hours of a woman's sixtieth birthday! ANA TURNS follows a lively contemporary protagonist who sees that she can no longer postpone making peace with her past or confronting her present-- it's the kind of book that opens up discussion in kaleidoscopic ways. We can't wait to hear Lisa in conversation with Marion Winik.
Please note that this event is outdoors - the patio is covered in case of rain, but we highly recommend bundling up on November days!
