Bookish People with Susan Coll

Thursday, October 13, 2022 | 6:30 p.m.

$0 | Friedman Family Auditorium

In Susan Coll’s new novel Bookish People, a perfect storm of comedic proportions erupts in a D.C. bookstore over the course of one soggy summer week. Fearful of potential repercussions from angry customers, independent bookstore owner Sophie Bernstein wants to cancel the store’s event for renowned poet Raymond Chaucer, who is rumored to be responsible for his wife’s suicide. But the store’s events coordinator is reluctant to cancel Chaucer’s appearance because of her suspicions he might be her biological father, and she can’t say no to the chance of finding out for sure.

The Washington Post called Bookish People “the perfect summer read for book lovers.” Join Coll for a reading and conversation with Donna Hemans, novelist and owner of the DC Writers

Bookish People will be available for sale and signing.
