Paula McLain Live
Tonight @ the Schwartz Bookshop in Brookfield - 7:00 PM
The motherless, impressionable teenage protagonist in Paula McLain’s debut novel, A Ticket To Ride finds a mentor of sorts in her cool, older cousin, Fawn, but over the course of a tragic 1973 summer, she slowly begins to realize what an unfortunate role model Fawn is—especially once a friend goes missing after a drunken joyride. McLain, who earned quick and loud acclaim for her poetic writing style, reads from the novel tonight at 7 p.m. at the Schwartz Bookshop in Brookfield.
