December 7, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Online Program (Zoom)
Join us for an online author talk and Q&A with Jean Hanff Korelitz, author of the New York Times bestseller The Plot.
Jake, once a promising novelist, is now teaching a third-rate MFA program. When his most arrogant student announces they don’t need his help, Jake is prepared to dismiss the boast as amateur narcissism. Jake braces himself for the supernova publication of his student’s first novel, but it never comes. When he discovers that his former student has died, Jake does what any self-respecting writer would do with a story like that – a story that absolutely needs to be told. In a few short years, all of his student’s predictions have come true, but Jake is the author enjoying the wave. But at the height of his glorious new life, an email arrives, the first salvo in a terrifying, anonymous campaign: Your are a thief, it says.
Jean Hanff Korelitz is the author of the novels You Should Have Known (which aired on HBO in October 2020 as The Undoing), Admission, The Devil and Webster, The White Rose, The Sabbathday River, and A Jury of Her Peers, as well as Interference Powder.
