BOOK LAUNCH

DEBUT VOICES

Johanna Lane

Moderated by Brooklyn-based Irish writer Kevin Holohan (The Brothers’ Lot)

Tuesday, May 20 | 7:30 pm

“Johanna Lane accomplishes the nearly miraculous: she paints the world of her story with such care and skill that, before you know it, it will feel more real than your own. And you won't want to leave it.”- Josh Weil, author of The New Valley

Join us for an evening with Johanna Lane as she reads from Black Lake, a moving debut novel which evokes the deep connection and nostalgia we feel for the places we love.

In Black Lake, the Campbell family find that they no longer have the funds to maintain Dulough, their rambling, idyllic ancestral home on the windswept coast of Ireland. Faced with financial ruin, they decide to open the estate as a tourist attraction. John Campbell, his wife, daughter and son must move from the luxury of the big house to a dank, small caretaker's cottage. The upheaval strains the already tenuous threads that bind the family—and when a tragic accident befalls them, long-simmering resentments and unanswered yearnings rise to the surface.

Johanna Lane was brought up in Ireland, studied English Literature at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and Creative Writing at Columbia's MFA program. She lives in New York City.
