Bestselling author Myla Goldberg will read from her latest book, The False Friend. This evocative novel explores the unreliable nature of memory and the long-lasting effects of a lie. “Goldberg uses beautiful, emotionally descriptive language to keep us with one ear to the ground, listening for the slow, quiet footsteps of creeping tragedy,” according to Booklist. Ms. Goldberg is also the author of Bee Season. Richard Gere and Juliette Binoche starred in the movie version of Bee Season. Advance registration is recommended.
