Rebecca Makkai reads and signs "The Borrower". Also, Tim Horvath, with "Understories"!

Tuesday July 24th, 2012, 7 p.m.

The Borrower is the story of Lucy Hull, a twenty-six-year-old children’s librarian in the small town of Hannibal, Missouri, who finds herself both kidnapper and kidnapped when her favorite patron, ten-year-old Ian Drake, runs away from home.

"Rarely is a first novel as smart and engaging and learned and funny and moving as "The Borrower." Rebecca Makkai is a writer to watch, as sneakily ambitious as she is unpretentious."~ Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prize-winning author

Also joining us will be Tim Horvath, a Portsmouth writer and close personal friend of Rebecca, sharing his new collection of short stories, Understories.
