CHRIS BOHJALIAN

May 10 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

Please join us for a special event with Chris Bohjalian, the New York Times bestselling author of Midwives (a selection of Oprah’s Book Club), Trans-Sister Radio (a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award), and The Flight Attendant (now a Golden Globe-winning HBO series), among many other smash hits. Bohjalian will be in conversation with Minnesota Book Award winner Sheila O’Connor about his new novel Hour of the Witch (Doubleday), a historical thriller set in 1662 that may also be the most timely novel Bohjalian has ever written. Come find out why! Here’s a hint from a starred review in Booklist:

Throughout Bohjalian’s prolific career, he has rewarded readers with indelibly drawn female protagonists, and the formidable yet vulnerable Mary Deerfield is a worthy addition to the canon. Conjuring up specters of #MeToo recriminations and social media shaming, there are twenty-first-century parallels to Bohjalian’s atmospheric Puritan milieu, and his trademark extensive research pays off in this authentic portrait of courage in the face of society’s worst impulses. Bohjalian is a perennial favorite, and this Salem Witch Hunt drama has a special magnetism.

Co-hosted by Rain Taxi and Literature Lovers Night Out, this virtual event is free to attend. MORE INFO HERE: https://www.raintaxi.com/chris-bohjalian/
