For our inaugural event, we are proud to have welcomed back to the stage Ayelet Waldman and Michael Chabon. Between them, Ayelet and Michael have presented at the Booksmith half a dozen times in the last five years alone. Their work, independent and collaborative, pushes the boundaries of genre and expectation.
Michael’s fiction gently tilts reality to one side, opening up possibilities that aren’t quite far-fetched, but are instead both familiar and fresh. His writing, wry, measured, and unpretentiously wise, is a gift to read.
Ayelet’s work is personal and unapologetic, broaching difficult topics without fear–novelist, memoirist, and singular voice, she challenges stubborn perspectives and invites new visions.
We could not have hoped for a better team to launch this series into being–two authors who are so creative, inquisitive, irreverent and smart are everything we hope to be, and we are so pleased for them to open these doors with us.
