A Celebration of John Williams’ ‘Stoner’

On Tuesday, November 18, at 7 p.m., join NYRB Classics and Brooklyn by the Book in celebrating Stoner, the international best seller by John Williams. Critic and classicist Daniel Mendelsohn, poet and memoirist Honor Moore, and novelist Ruth Rendell will discuss the incredible—and still-growing—resurgence of the novel’s popularity. Writer and literary critic Liesl Schillinger will moderate the evening.

The panel will be held in the Dweck Center at the Brooklyn Public Library, 10 Grand Army Plaza. This is a free event, though reservations are strongly encouraged, and seating is first-come, first-served. Visit the Brooklyn by the Book event page to RSVP here.
