Author Reception with Zadie Smith
Enjoy appetizers, drinks and conversation with author and literary journalist Zadie Smith and receive a complimentary copy of her latest book, Feel Free. Since her debut novel was published at age 24, Smith has established herself as one of the most iconic, critically respected, and popular writers of her generation. This exclusive mix-and-mingle experience includes appetizers, two glasses of wine, and a free paperback copy of Smith's newest book Feel Free. Gathering in one place for the first time previously unpublished work, as well as already classic essays such as “Joy” and “Find Your Beach,” Feel Free offers reflections on important recent events in culture and politics, as well as Smith’s own life. Equally at home in the world of good books and bad politics, Brooklyn-born rappers and the work of Swiss novelists, she is by turns wry, heartfelt, indignant, and incisive–and never any less than perfect company. This is literary journalism at its zenith. Tickets include admission to the reception, appetizers, two glasses of wine, and a free paperback copy of Feel Free. This event is limited to 30 people. Accommodations can be made in advance for guests with disabilities and dietary restrictions. This exclusive experience will be held prior to an evening presentation and book signing with the author at Westerville South High School starting at 7pm.
