Thalia Book Club: Jennifer Egan, The Candy House


Masks are encouraged and appreciated, but not mandatory for this event.

Bestselling author Jennifer Egan deep dives into her critically acclaimed novel The Candy House, the companion to her Pulitzer Prize-winning A Visit from the Goon Squad. Skillfully crafted and chillingly prescient, The Candy House foretells a future where memory is made a commodity, told in an astonishing array of narrative styles. Tara Westover (Educated) leads the conversation, and Dylan Baker (Hunters) performs an excerpt from the book.

"There’s plenty of dazzling innovation in style and form, but the greatest riches are in the many luminous insights on her characters." —Publisher's Weekly, Best Books of 2022

"A fast-paced polyvoiced romp thru America in the grip of a sinister tech that allows others into your mind. EEK!"—Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid's Tale and The Testaments

There will be a book signing at this event.

Please Note: Due to illness, Sherry Turkle will no longer appear at this event.
