Holly LeCraw/ Eric Larson/ Martin O'Malley/David Graeber. March 2nd, 2015

Tomorrow! Tuesday, March 3, 7 PM --   Meet author Holly LeCraw!
From Holly LeCraw, the Pushcart Prize-nominated author of the critically acclaimed debut novel The Swimming Pool, comes a refreshing and bold new twist on the traditional New England boarding school novel with The Half Brother, an elegant and propulsive story about family loyalties, inescapable fates, and the enduring search for self identity.

“A stirring, melancholy tale of families and the secrets they dare not share, set against the cloistered backdrop of a New England boarding school.” –Janice Y. K. Lee, author of The Piano Teacher 
"When Harvard graduate Charlie Garrett starts teaching at Abbott, the chair of the English department tells the young teacher that his students “all still believe in truth.” LeCraw’s gorgeous sentences dramatize a campus where literature stirs young hearts and minds….The novel begins with an epigraph from gifted teacher-writer Andre Dubus, who says he “learned to walk into a classroom wondering what I would say” rather than planning. The Half Brother captures his spirit, and the result is one of the finest school-set novels in recent memory."  - Nick Ripatrazone, The Millions (Most Anticipated: The Great 2015 Book Preview)
