Sherman Alexie discusses 'California' with Edan Lepucki Aug. 12 at The Seattle Public Library

Edan Lepucki

Award-winning author Sherman Alexie will moderate a conversation with Edan Lepucki on her debut novel "California" from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12 at The Seattle Public Library, Central Library, 1000 4th Ave., Level 1, Microsoft Auditorium.

In the post-apocalyptic world of "California," Cal and Frida have left behind a decaying Los Angeles to try to live off the land. But when Frida discovers she's pregnant, the need to connect with other survivors becomes more imperative.

She is a staff writer for The Millions, and teaches creative writing at the UCLA Extension Writers' Program and for Writing Workshops Los Angeles, which she founded. "California" was recently featured on The Colbert Report as part of Colbert's reporting on the Amazon/Hachette dispute.


This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, author series sponsor Gary Kunis, media sponsor The Seattle Times and presented in partnership with The Elliott Bay Book Company. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
