Acclaimed authors Corban Addison, Chris Pavone, and Roger Rosenblatt will discuss their latest works of fiction and nonfiction involving stories of human drama, intrigue, and personal reflections. This special event will be held at the Francis Scott Key Auditorium on Sunday, November 4 at 3 p.m.
Bestselling author Rosenblatt (“Making Toast” and “Unless It Moves the Human Heart”) delivers a stirring meditation on the passage of grief, the solace of solitude, and the redemptive power of love in his latest work, “Kayak Morning.” Addison’s new novel, “A Walk Across the Sun,” tells the story of two teenage Indian girls who, orphaned by a devastating tsunami, are abducted and forced into a brothel. Pavone’s thriller, “The Expats,” tells the story of an American family in Luxembourg whose lives begin to unravel as their once familiar world is ripped apart by secrets and unnerving suspicions.
