Jonathan Franzen in conversation with Maria Semple, Crossroads

Tue, 10/12/2021 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Village Books is pleased to team up with 5 stellar PNW bookstores to bring this great event to you on zoom! Tickets are $35 and each comes with an autographed copy of Crossroads (while supplies last!). 
Jonathan Franzen’s gift for wedding depth and vividness of character with breadth of social vision has never been more dazzlingly evident than in Crossroads.
A tour de force of interwoven perspectives and sustained suspense, its action largely unfolding on a single winter day, Crossroads is the story of a Midwestern family at a pivotal moment of moral crisis. Jonathan Franzen’s gift for melding the small picture and the big picture has never been more dazzlingly evident.

Bubbie, like many grandmothers, turns the ordinary into the spectacular and the mundane into something miraculous. In Bubbie’s Magical Hair, the lyrical text combines with playful illustrations to take readers on a whimsical journey as Bubbie and her grandchildren grow older, reminding us of all the ways grandparents bring us joy, comfort, and inspiration. Nature and imagination combine to honor the power of all grandparents and their enduring relationships.  A visual delight that can be read on many levels, exploring feelings, science, international customs, and imagination.  Ribbons, stars, and dandelion dust spread magic. This is a universal story of passing on the essence of loved ones, as life continues. 

"As a grandmother of young children and an author of books of creativity for young children, I feel particularly drawn to this beautiful and emotionally deep story of Bubbie's Magical Hair. The emotional connection is strong and deeply important for anyone who has ever loved." —MaryAnn F. Kohl, Author/ Educator, Bright Ring Publishing
