Binnie Kirshenbaum Reads Monday 7/23

"A tremendous talent. Her novels are sexy, intelligent, complex, and provocative; they press against your heart the way old lovers do." — Junot Diaz

"Not many young female novelists can deal with sex, the appetite for it, and the loss of such appetite, with such candor, lack of self-protection, and humor as Binnie Kirshenbaum." — Norman Mailer

"...Kirshenbaum, the prolific writer of novels and stories written with wit and serious moral a presence to be reckoned with. One of her charms is that vestigial ladylike manner of a young woman who deports herself properly, aims for grace....(A) novelist of enormous cultural reach....the voice of a writer, known, or on the endless journey to knowing herself." — Maureen Howard

Kirshenbaum, who is also Chairperson of the Writing Program at Columbia University School of the Arts, will share the stage with award-winning memoirist and novelist Darrin Strauss, Monday,  July 203rd, 8PM, Davis Audiorium, Palamountain Hall, 815 North Broadway, Saratoga. Free.
