Great Authors Lecture Speaker:
Ann Patchett Sold Out

October 10, 2017 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Join us for an engaging and insightful evening at Meijer Gardens with celebrated novelist Ann Patchett, author of seven books, independent bookstore owner, and frequent contributor to publications including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. TIME magazine named her one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2012 for her efforts on behalf of the literary community. “Reading fiction is important,” Patchett says. “It is a vital means of imagining a life other than our own, which in turn makes us more empathetic beings.” Don’t miss the chance to hear this award-winning author and champion of literary culture talk about her life and work.

This event is full. If you would like to be added to the waitlist contact Anna Wolff at awolff@meijergardens.org or 616-974-5225.
