New Reads with Rachel Kubie: The Lace Reader with the author, Brunonia Barry.
Can you read your future in a piece of lace? All of the Whitney women can. But the last time Towner read, it killed her sister and nearly robbed Towner of her own sanity. Vowing never to read lace again, her resolve is tested when faced with the mysterious, unsolvable disappearance of her beloved Great Aunt Eva, Salem's original Lace Reader. Told from opposing and often unreliable perspectives, the story engages the reader's own beliefs.
First Look: A Fortunate Age with the author, Joanna Smith Rakoff.
Set against the backdrop of the vast economic and political changes of the era -- from the decadent age of dot-com millionaires to the sobering post-September eleventh landscape -- Joanna Smith Rakoff's deeply affecting characters and incisive social commentary are reminiscent of the great Victorian novels. Our exclusive discussion begins on January 5.
