A rare opportunity to see one of America’s greatest novelists in Manchester. Jane Smiley is the author of numerous novels including the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Thousand Acres, the Orange-shortlisted Horse Heaven, and Private Life, which was named a best book of 2010 by the New Yorker, The Atlantic and The Washington Post. She will be in conversation with Mariana Casale O’Ryan discussing Golden Age, the long-anticipated final instalment in her epic Last Hundred Years trilogy, which USA Today called “staggering… a masterpiece in the making.” A sweeping, masterfully written tale of one American family, Golden Age assembles the Langdons together on their Iowa farm, amid unexpected visitors and possible reconciliations, and follows their individual journeys up to the year 2020.
