Anthony Marra Event Wows Crowd

Tuesday, August 13, 2013 | Permalink

MarraeventAnthony Marra, author of A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, walked into our CapRadio Reads event last night a writer, and walked out a rock star.  His conversation with Donna Apidone was intriguing, insightful and really very funny. As part of the "in conversation" piece of the program we were able to glean a peek inside his visits to Chechnya...."Is Vladimyr Putin still looking for you?", his secret behind the mysterious suitcase in his book, and his girlfriend's hope for a warmer location for his next book.  Sorry, it seems Antartica will be the setting.

Our guests were treated to glorious appetizers from Magpie Catering and even, in an homage to the setting of the book, a vodka tasting.

We are thrilled that so many of you are attending these wonderful events. The comments last night were absolutely universal in their praise for the author and for the clever questions Donna asked. It was also a treat to hear the excellent questions from the audience. 

Don't miss a minute of this book club. Please sign up early so you get your space at the table for the next face-to-face meeting. We'd love to see you.

As always, thanks for reading
