Novelist Nina Revoyr has read at Elliott Bay on many occasions since the publication of her debut novel, Necessary Hunger, and we welcome her back this evening to read from her latest book, A Student of History (Akashic Books). In A Student of History, Rick Nagano, a graduate student of working class Polish/Japanese descent, becomes involved in the world of a charming, elderly heiress who has hired him to document an old Los Angeles not described in his history books. Akashic Books is also publishing a new edition of her classic novel, Necessary Hunger.
“Revoyr is an edgy and spellbinding writer with an uncanny gift for aligning human struggles with nature’s glory and perils.”-Booklist.
