Presented in partnership with The Library Foundation and Austin Public Library, BookPeople welcomes back to Austin PEN/Faulkner Award and Orange Prize-winning author Ann Patchett.

Patchett will be joining us for the launch of her eighth novel, The Dutch House, a dark fairy tale about two smart people who struggle to overcome their past. She will read from and discuss the novel, take audience questions, and sign books, which are available for purchase before and during the event. Get your tickets here!

She has won numerous prizes, including the PEN/ Faulkner Award and the Orange Prize for Fiction, and her work has been translated into more than thirty languages.
