P&P Live! Marisa Silver — The Mysteries - with Lauren Groff

Upcoming Event
Thursday, May 6, 2021 - 6:00pm

Miggy Brenneman is a wild and reckless seven-year-old with a fierce imagination, hellbent on pushing against the limits of childhood. Ellen is polite, cautious, and drawn to her friend's bright flame. While the adults around them adjust to unstable times and fractured relationships, the girls respond with increasingly dangerous play. When tragedy strikes, all the novel's characters grapple with questions of fate and individual responsibility, none more so than Miggy, who must make sense of a swiftly disappearing past and a radically transformed future.

Written with searing clarity and surpassing tenderness, The Mysteries limns the painful ambiguities of adulthood and the intense perceptions of an indelibly drawn child to offer a profound exploration of how all of us, at every stage, must reckon with life's abundant and unsolvable mysteries.

Silver will be in conversation with Lauren Groff, New York Times bestselling author of five books, including the novel Fates and Furies and the story collection, Florida, both of which were finalists for the National Book Award. Her sixth book, Matrix, will be published in September by Riverhead Books.
