A Night in the Catskills with Adam O'Fallon Price & Daniel Wallace
Join us for a conversation between Adam OFallon Price (The Grand Tour) and Daniel Wallace (Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions, The Watermelon King) as they discuss Adams newest book, The Hotel Neversink. A gripping portrait of a Jewish family in the Catskills, its an astounding literary feat  a murder mystery, a ghost story, a century-spanning family history, and a standup routine all in one, with dramatic variety to rival any Catskills floor show (J. Robert Lennon).

Inspired by this fictional hotel in its heyday, well have borscht belt snacks and a champagne toast on the house. Jazz guitarist Charles Chace will play an acoustic set, and well have a cash bar featuring mid-century cocktails.

Copies of The Hotel Neversink will be available for purchase courtesy of our friends at The Regulator (and Adam will be on hand to sign books).

Free

About Adam OFallon Price:

Adam O'Fallon Price is the author of two novels: The Grand Tour, published by Doubleday in 2016, and The Hotel Neversink, coming August 6, 2019 from Tin House Books. His short fiction has appeared in Harper's, The Paris Review, Granta, VICE, and many other places. His essays and non-fiction appear frequently at the Paris Review Daily, Electric Literature, and The Millions, where he's a staff writer. He lives in Carrboro, NC.

About Daniel Wallace:

Daniel Wallace is author of six novels, including Big Fish (1998), Ray in Reverse (2000), The Watermelon King (2003), Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician (2007), The Kings and Queens of Roam (2013), and most recently Extraordinary Adventures (2017).  His childrens book, published in 2014, and for which he did both the words and the pictures, is called The Cats Pajamas, and it is adorable. In 2003 Big Fish was adapted and released as a movie and then in 2013 the book and the movie were mish-mashed together and became a Broadway musical. His novels have been translated into over three-dozen languages. Daniel Wallace is the J. Ross MacDonald Distinguished Professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, his alma mater, where he directs the Creative Writing Program.
