According to The Wall Street Journal, “short story master George Saunders helped change the trajectory of American fiction.” Now he brings us his highly anticipated first novel, Lincoln in the Bardo. The story hinges on a historic event: the death of Abraham Lincoln’s 11-year-old son at the dawn of the Civil War. The book has been described as an exploration of death, grief, and the powers of good and evil. Saunders will read excerpts of his book and discuss his life and work.
