15 South Dubuque Street, Iowa City, IA 52240
Join us for a special 5 p.m. event with Writers' Workshop alum A.M. Homes, who will read from her latest novel, The Unfolding. "A dazzling portrait of a family—and a country—in flux. A story about what happens when truths that once seemed self-evident turn out to be neither self-evident nor even true. A.M. Homes has perfectly captured an America as it lurches toward freak-out, and a family as it shreds the lies it's been living by. The Unfolding is hilarious and shocking and heartbreaking and just a little bit deranged—in other words, it's a book that feels like what it feels like to be alive right now." —Nathan Hill
A.M. Homes is the author of 13 books, among them the best-selling memoir The Mistress' Daughter; the novels This Book Will Save Your Life, The End of Alice, and Jack; and the short story collections Days of Awe, The Safety of Objects, and Things You Should Know.
