An Evening with Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Elizabeth Strout

Wednesday, October 30th - 7:00pm at Hermosa Beach Community Center

#1 New York Times bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout continues the life of her beloved Olive Kitteridge, a character who has captured the imaginations of millions of readers.

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