Elliott Bay Book Company says
Long one of the most popular and acclaimed novelists at work in the U.S., Jane Hamilton makes this welcome Seattle return, to be joined in conversation by Elizabeth George, herself one of the most wonderful novelists today. Author of A Map of the World, The Book of Ruth, and more, Jane Hamilton is here tonight with her newest, The Excellent Lombards (Grand Central).

"What a beautiful book. Its style is a wonder of accuracy--one enters its world in the fullest possible way. At the center is a girl whose fate is linked to the fate of her family's struggling farm, a place whose rhythms and details are miraculously evoked. Jane Hamilton, whose work I have long admired, has brought us again to the juncture of innocence and chance." ―Joan Silber.

"This is the book Jane Hamilton was born to write, and it is a book that thrilled me to read. The Excellent Lombards is, in fact, excellent." ―Ann Patchett.

Elizabeth George is most recently the author of the Inspector Lynley novel, A Banquet of Consequences. Free admission is on a first come, first served basis.

Co-presented with The Seattle Public Library and Hedgebrook.
