Endorsed by Curators:
Join us in welcoming beloved and best-selling author Anne Fadiman to the Twin Cities! Renowned for her two scintillating essay collections, At Large and At Small and Ex Libris, as well as for her eye-opening and utterly engaging The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down (winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award), Fadiman will present her new book, The Wine Lovers Daughter (Farrar, Straus and Giroux). As Adam Gopnik puts it, The ostensible object of Anne Fadimans wonderful new book is the wine cellar of her father, the once-omnipresent critic Clifton Fadiman. But its real subjects include the insecurities of American Jews, the glories of mid-century middlebrow culture, and, above all, the always intricate, often exasperated, and finally deeply tender relation of father and daughter.
This event is FREE and open to the public, but your RSVP helps us plan accordingly and all advance responders will be entered in a raffle for a prize to be awarded at the event!
