Karen Thompson Walker - The Age of Miracles

Tuesday, July 17, 2012 - 7:00pm

Karen Thompson Walker reads from The Age of Miracles ($26.00), a luminous, haunting, and unforgettable coming of age novel set against the backdrop of an utterly altered world….  On a seemingly ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia and her family awake to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth has suddenly begun to slow.

The Age of Miracles spins its glowing magic through incredibly lucid and honest prose, giving equal care and dignity to the small spheres and the large. It is at once a love letter to the world as we know it and an elegy.”—Aimee Bender

Karen Thompson Walker is a graduate of UCLA and the Columbia MFA program and a recipient of the 2011 Sirenland Fellowship as well as a Bomb magazine fiction prize. A former editor at Simon & Schuster, she wrote The Age of Miracles in the mornings before work.
