Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series: Jonathan Lethem & John Jeremiah Sullivan


The 2012/2013 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series closes with two nationally acclaimed nonfiction writers, Jonathan Lethem and John Jeremiah Sullivan. Lethem, a MacArthur "genius" fellow, is an acclaimed novelist, essayist and short story writer. His works include Motherless Brooklyn, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award; The Fortress of Solitude, a New York Times Best Seller; Chronic City, a New York Times Best Book of 2009; and The Ecstasy of Influence, a New York Times Notable Book of 2011.

Sullivan, a young star of the literary nonfiction world, is often compared to Hunter S. Thompson, Joan Didion and David Foster Wallace. His debut essay collection, Pulphead, was named a New York Times Notable Book for 2011 and one of Amazon's Best Books of 2011, and landed on Time magazine's year-end best-book list.

The reading is followed by an on-stage interview conducted by editor-in-chief of Texas Monthly magazine Jake Silverstein and a book sale and signing.
