Michael Chabon - Telegraph Avenue

Monday, September 24, 2012 - 7:00pm

Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Chabon reads from Telegraph Avenue ($27.99), an exhilarating, big-hearted novel that explores the intertwined lives of two Oakland families, one black and one white. Telegraph Avenue is a world grounded in pop culture—Kung Fu, ’70s Blaxploitation films, vinyl LPs, jazz and soul music—and a bravura epic of friendship, race, and secret histories.

Priority seating to this event offered with purchase of the author's new book from Book Passage.

Michael Chabon is the bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the Mysteries of Pittsburgh, A Model World, Wonder Boys, Werewolves In Their Youth, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, The Final Solution, The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, Maps & Legends, Gentlemen of the Road, and the middle-grade book Summerland. He lives in Berkeley, California, with his wife, the novelist Ayelet Waldman, and their children.
