The acclaimed bestselling author returns to Symphony Space to discuss her latest novelTold with equal measures of humor and heartbreak, Commonwealth tells the enthralling and tender story of how an unexpected romantic encounter irrevocably changes two families’ lives. In conversation with Emma Straub (Modern Lovers). An excerpt from the novel will be performed by Alan Alda.

"Patchett elegantly manages a varied cast of characters as alliances and animosities ebb and flow, cross-country and over time... [Commonwealth] show[s] her at her peak in humor, humanity, and understanding people in challenging situations."
-Publisher's Weekly Starred review.
