Did you fall in love with Olive Kitteridge? She’s back and Elizabeth Strout will discuss her new collection Olive, Again with writer Nina Sankovitch.

Prickly, wry, resistant to change yet ruthlessly honest and deeply empathetic, Olive Kitteridge is “a compelling life force” (San Francisco Chronicle). The New Yorker has said that Elizabeth Strout “animates the ordinary with an astonishing force,” and she has never done so more clearly than in these pages, where the iconic Olive struggles to understand not only herself and her own life but the lives of those around her in the town of Crosby, Maine. Olive will continue to startle us, to move us, and to inspire moments of transcendent grace.

Register online and pre-purchase her new book, too.
