Celeste Ng with Florangela Davila

Celeste Ng, who visited four years ago with her acclaimed debut novel, Everything I Never Told You - a book which has kept going into readers’ hands over the years - makes this welcome return to read from and discuss her brilliant new novel, Little Fires Everywhere (Penguin Press). Florangela Davila, presently managing editor at Crosscut and a longtime journalist of note, will be part of the evening, for conversation and q-and-a.

“An intricate and captivating portrait of an eerily perfect suburban town with its dark undertones not-quite-hidden from view and a powerful and suspenseful novel about motherhood…Ng explores the complexities of adoption, surrogacy, abortion, privacy, and class, questioning all the while who earns, who claims, and who loses the right to be called a mother…an impressive accomplishment.” —Publishers Weekly.
