The Dutch House

in conversation with Jeanine Cummins, American Dirt
Sunday, January 10, 4pm

Award-winning writer Ann Patchett will be talking about her latest longtime New York Times bestseller, The Dutch House, with fellow novelist Jeanine Cummins ("American Dirt"). Audience Q&A to follow

Join us for another top author conversation, followed by a virtual audience Q&A.

Ann Patchett is the author of seven novels, including the New York Times bestsellers “Bel Canto,” “State of Wonder,” and “Commonwealth, and she’s also published three outstanding works of nonfiction including the memoir “Truth & Beauty,” about her friendship with the writer Lucy Grealy. Patchett has been the recipient of numerous honors, awards and fellowships, including the PEN/Faulkner Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship. Her writing has been translated into more than thirty languages. She is the co-owner of a much loved independent bookstore, Parnassus Books, in Nashville Tennessee, and is a highly vocal and public advocate for bookstores, libraries and reading everywhere.

The Dutch House was released in paperback on January 5, 2021. The book has garnered rave reviews, won numerous awards and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. It is the story of a grand house in suburban Philadelphia and the members of a fractured family who keep finding themselves drawn back to it, but as always with Ann’s books, it’s about so much more.  “Patchett's concern here, as in much of her fiction, is with the often unconventional families we cobble together with what's available to us. Being Patchett, she brings her novel around to themes of gratitude, compassion and forgiveness….chances are, you won't want to put down this engrossing, warmhearted book even after you've read the last page.” —NPR

Jeanine Cummins is the author of four books: the bestselling memoir "A Rip in Heaven," and the novels "The Outside Boy," "The Crooked Branch," and the controversial longtime bestseller, "American Dirt."
