Author A.M. Homes in Conversation with Laura F. Edwards
On Tuesday, November 29 at 7 p.m., Princeton Public Library and Labyrinth Books welcome author A.M. Homes to the Library’s Community Room for a discussion of her new novel, The Unfolding. Homes is the former recipient of the Women’s Prize for her book May We Be Forgiven. She is the author of 13 books and teaches in the Creative Writing Program at Princeton University. Homes will be joined in discussion by Princeton University professor Laura F. Edwards. Edwards is a legal historian whose research focuses on the 19th-century United States.
In The Unfolding, the Big Guy loves his family, money, and country. Undone by the results of the 2008 presidential election, he taps into a group of like-minded men to reclaim their version of the American Dream. As they build a scheme to disturb and disrupt, the Big Guy also faces turbulence within his own family. His wife, Charlotte, grieves a life not lived, while his 18-year-old daughter, Meaghan, begins to realize that her favorite subject is history and it’s not exactly what her father taught her.
This event is part of the Library’s and Labyrinth Bookstore’s joint programming and is cosponsored by Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts and Humanities Council.
