Literary Lunch: David Mitchell - The Bone Clocks

Ticket: $55 (includes lunch & signed book)
 
 
 
From David Mitchell, author of the global phenomenon Cloud Atlas, comes The Bone Clocks, a vast, intricate piece that weaves together six narratives spanning from 1984 to the 2030s about a secret war between a cult of soul-decanters and the small group of vigilantes who try to take them down. It's an up-all-night thriller that fluently mixes the supernatural, sci-fi, horror, social satire, and heartbreaking realism.

David Mitchell is the award-winning and bestselling author of The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, Black Swan Green, Cloud Atlas, Number9Dream, and Ghostwritten. Twice shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Mitchell was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2007.

Literary Lunch: Anita Diamant - The Boston Girl

Ticket: $55 (includes meal & signed book)

 

 

Addie Baum is The Boston Girl, born in 1900 to immigrant parents who were unprepared for and suspicious of America and its effect on their three daughters. Growing up in the North End, then a teeming multicultural neighborhood, Addie's intelligence and curiosity take her to a world her parents can't imagine--a world of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture, and new opportunities for women. Addie wants to finish high school and dreams of going to college. She wants a career and to find true love.

Eighty-five-year-old Addie tells the story of her life to her twenty-two-year-old granddaughter, who has asked her "How did you get to be the woman you are today." She begins in 1915, the year she found her voice and made friends who would help shape the course of her life. From the one-room tenement apartment she shared with her parents and two sisters, to the library group for girls she joins at a neighborhood settlement house, to her first, disastrous love affair, Addie recalls her adventures with compassion for the naive girl she was and a wicked sense of humor.

Anita Diamant is the bestselling author of the novels The Red Tent, Good Harbor, The Last Days of Dogtown, and Day After Night. An award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in The Boston Globe Magazine and Parenting, she is the author of six nonfiction guides to contemporary Jewish life.
