Arlington Reads 2012 featured fiction author Jennifer Egan will speak on April 26, 7 p.m. at Arlington Central Library Auditorium, discussing her 2011 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Visit from the Goon Squad.
It’s a brash, unpredictable, darkly funny collection of interlocking narratives that follow characters from the 1970s San Francisco punk scene to a future where solar panels replace lawns and PowerPoint is the new literature.
The New York Times calls it a “relentlessly savvy” work with “a sense that human culture is changing at such warp speed that memory itself must adapt to keep pace.”
Admission is free but seating is limited and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Books will be available for sale and signing following the program.
Free parking is available in the garage and lots adjacent to the library, which is also an easy walking distance from the Virginia Square and Ballston Metrorail stations.
Arlington Reads is made possible by the Friends of the Arlington Public Library. For more information, please call 703-228-6321.
