Daniel Mason with Andrew Sean Greer (Online)
July 6, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
This event is online.
We are thrilled to celebrate with Kepler’s favorite Daniel Mason for his new book, A Registry of My Passage Upon The Earth. Join us online as we raise a glass to an incredible collection of literature. If you’ve read Mason, best-selling author of The Winter Soldier and The Piano Tuner, you already know that this new book of short stories is one that you don’t want to miss.
Including nine stories of human endurance, vivacity, and accomplishment that range from a balloonist’s unexpected discovery to multiple medical marvels, Mason’s writing will help you soar, believe in minor miracles, and explore the human condition. If you loved Anthony Doerr’s All The Light We Cannot See and Abraham Verghese’s Cutting for Stone but have never read Mason, this book is the perfect introduction to a writer who will sweep you away.
A professor of Psychiatry at Stanford University, Mason’s previous novels have been translated into 28 languages, adapted for the opera and theater, and marked bestseller lists across the world. At times funny and irreverent, always moving and deeply urgent, the stories in this new collection— among them a National Magazine Award and a Pushcart Prize winner— cap a fifteen-year project.
Joining the discussion to interview Mason is Pulitzer Prize winner Andrew Sean Greer, another longtime Kepler’s favorite. Greer has authored six works of fiction, including the bestsellers Less and The Confessions of Max Tivoli.
Together, these two titans in literature will transport you to a different world through a discussion of one of the most revered bastions of American letters: finely crafted, utterly original, and richly imagined short stories.
