An Evening with Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Elizabeth Strout

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

Ticket price includes a copy of the hardcover book Olive, Again

#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.

Whether with a teenager coming to terms with the loss of her father; a young woman about to give birth during a hilariously inopportune moment; a nurse who confesses a secret high school crush; or a lawyer who struggles with an inheritance she does not want to accept, the unforgettable Olive will continue to startle us, to move us, and to inspire moments of transcendent grace.

Elizabeth Strout is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of "Olive Kitteridge", winner of the Pulitzer Prize; "Anything Is Possible", her most recent book and winner of The Story Prize; "My Name Is Lucy Barton", longlisted for the Man Booker Prize; "The Burgess Boys", named one of the best books of the year by The Washington Post and NPR; "Abide with Me", a national bestseller; and "Amy and Isabelle", winner of the Los Angeles Times Art Seidenbaum Award for First Fiction and the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize. She has also been a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, the International Dublin Literary Award, and the Orange Prize. Her short stories have been published in a number of magazines, including The New Yorker. Elizabeth Strout lives in New York City.
