Richard Russo

September 8th, 2009 by EVENTS

Time: Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 6pm
Location: Harold Washington Library, 400 S. State Street

The new season of Writers on the Record with Victoria Lautman begins with Richard Russo as he discusses his new novel, That Old Cape Magic.

That Old Cape Magic is a novel of deep introspection and every family feeling imaginable, with a middle-aged man confronting his parents and their failed marriage, his own troubled one, his daughter’s new life and, finally, what it was he thought he wanted and what in fact he has. The storytelling is flawless throughout, moments of great comedy and even hilarity alternating with others of rueful understanding and heart-stopping sadness, and its ending is at once surprising, uplifting and unlike anything this Pulitzer Prize winner has ever written.

Writers on the Record with Victoria Lautman
is a free, hour-long interview. This interview will be broadcast at noon on Sunday, September 27th. The events are free, no reservations required, with seating on a first-come basis.
