Join us in welcoming Chiara Barzini to celebrate her dazzling new novel,Things That Happened Before the Earthquake. In this coming-of-age story, Barzini summons the absurdity of the decadence and dystopia of 90s Los Angeles as a young Italian girl navigates this strange new suburbia while her parents try to make it in Hollywood. Chiara will be joined in conversation by Amelia Gray, author of Isadora and Gutshot, and Electric Literature's Lincoln Michel, author of Upright Beasts.
