Bergendoff Hall, Room 126.
Thursday, Feb. 28, 7:00 p.m.
In preparation for novelist Elizabeth McCracken’s reading on March 13 in the series Lit Wits: Writers Read at Augustana, Augustana’s Katie Hanson will lead a discussion of McCracken’s wild and endearing novel Niagara Falls All Over Again. Read the book, talk about it with fellow enthusiasts, then hear the author herself read aloud on March 13!
Spanning a lifetime, the novel follows the lives and career of vaudeville team Rocky Carter and Mose Sharp as they take the country by storm on the stage, then in Hollywood. As their careers dwindle, the two have a falling out, but the impact each has on the other’s life is enduring. Tender and funny, this is a wonderful story.
Discussion is free and open to the public.
