SF – An Evening with Michael Chabon

Author Michael Chabon appears in Conversation with Isabel Duffy on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at 7:30 PM.

“On Arts” Benefiting 826 Valencia Scholarship Program

An “immensely gifted writer and magical prose stylist” (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times), Michael Chabon is celebrated for his remarkable ability to transport his readers. His many novels include The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, Wonder Boys, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, and Telegraph Avenue. His most recent, Moonglow, is based on stories he was told by his ailing grandfather during a visit in 1989. It is part novel, part memoir, in which he has “stuck to facts except when facts refused to conform with memory, narrating purpose, or the truth as I prefer to understand it. Wherever liberties have been taken … the reader is assured that they have been taken with due abandon.” The book follows his grandparents as their lives weave through much of the 20th century.

FL – Moonglow Signing

Author Michael Chabon presents his new novel MOONGLOW at Books & Books on Monday, December 12, 2016 at 7:00 PM.

In MOONGLOW, Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Chabon turns his own family history into fiction as he imagines the murky origins and murkier fate of Chabon Scientific Company, a mail-order novelty business.  This expansive narrative unfolds as an old man’s deathbed confession to his grandson; over the course of his final week, the man leaves a dizzying legacy of half-revealed secrets and shocking revelations as he looks back over a tumultuous century and relives scenes from an impoverished childhood in south Philadelphia, wartime Europe, a prison in upstate New York, and the American space program.

About this author:
Michael Chabon is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay — an epic novel that charts 16 years in the lives of Sammy Clay and Joe Kavalier, two Jewish cousins who create a popular series of comic books in the early 1940s, the years leading up to the U.S. entry into World War II. In addition to novels, including the now-classic Wonder Boys, Chabon has also produced short stories, screenplays, children’s books, comics, and newspaper serials.
