Louise Erdrich and Anne Enright
Presented by 92Y and Irish Arts Center

Thursday, May 12 | 8 PM

at 92nd Street Y, 1395 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10128

"For nearly three decades, [Erdrich] has been populating her novels with indelible characters...who have intermingled, waged war and loved mightily for more than a century...Each new Erdrich novel adds new layers of pathos and comedy, earthiness and spiritual questing, to her priceless multigenerational drama." - The Boston Globe

"[Enright's] style is as sharp and brilliant as Joan Didion's, and the scope of her understanding is as wide as Alice Munro's...Her vision of Ireland is as brave and original as Edna O'Brien's." - Colm Tóibín

Join us as two of the most significant writers today read from their new novels at 92Y Unterberg Poetry Center. The Booker Prize-winning author and  inaugural Laureate for Irish Fiction Anne Enright shares a story of fracture and family, selfishness and compassion in The Green Road. The National Book Award-winning author and the Pulitzer Prize nominee Louise Erdrich’s reads from her new novel LaRose, anemotionally haunting contemporary tale of a tragic accident, a demand for justice, and a profound act of atonement with ancient roots in indigenous culture.
