Monday, February 6, 7:30 p.m. Presents: Universal Harvester in conversation with Donna Tartt
John Darnielle, the musician behind the band the Mountain Goats, is also an acclaimed novelist: his first novel Wolf in White Van was nominated for the National Book Award, as well as being a New York Times bestseller. In his novel Universal Harvester, life in a small Iowa town in the late 1990s takes a dark turn when mysterious footage begins appearing on VHS cassettes at the local Video Hut. Darnielle discusses his work with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Donna Tartt, author of The Secret History, The Little Friend, and The Goldfinch. Book signing to follow.
