Tonight at the NYPL: Lore Segal and Julie Orringer


If you’re in New York tonight, come join Melville House at the New York Public library to hear our author Lore Segal (Lucinella) in conversation with Julie Orringer (The Invisible Bridge).  Lore and Julie will both read from and discuss their work.

7:00 PM, Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
South Court Auditorium (Map and directions)
42nd Street and 5th Avenue

Lore Segal is a novelist, essayist, translator, and writer of children’s books. Her celebrated works include Other People’s Houses, Her First American, and Shakespeare’s Kitchen.  Melville House has reissued Segal’s wickedly funny and timeless novella of the New York literary scene, Lucinella, last fall and an excerpt is available online here.

Julie Orringer is the author of the acclaimed story collection How To Breathe Underwater (New York Times Notable Book, 2003).  Her first novel, The Invisible Bridge, will be published by Knopf this month.
