National Writers Series Presents

An Evening with Geraldine Brooks

June 13, 2023

Meet beloved author and Pulitzer Prize winning author Geraldine Brooks. Her newest novel, Horse, is based on the remarkable true story of Lexington, a record-breaking thoroughbred. Spanning nearly 170 years of American history, it’s a sweeping novel of love and obsession and our unfinished reckoning with racism.

For this event, you can buy one ticket with a signed hardcover book, or two tickets with a signed hardcover. (For the 2 ticket/1 book option, please call the boxoffice at 231-941-8082. It is not available online.)

Doors open at 6 p.m. with a cash bar and live music. The event starts at 7pm, followed by a personalized book signing.
