Time Waits for No One... Writers on Life, Love and Loss
Celebrate two of America's most profoundly thoughtful writers with Arlington Reads 2012, featuring works that look inward with stunning, unconventional frankness.
Jennifer Egan, April 26, 2012 at Central Library
Author of the 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."
Joan Didion was forced to cancel her appearance due to illness.
