This week at brookline booksmith

This week our events series welcomes Marc Solomon, a campaigner for marriage equality; Tasneem Zehra Husain, a string theorist trying her hand at fiction; the second coming of Reif Larsen, author of the celebrated The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet; a slippery legal thriller from Tim Dorsey; and a visit from Rebecca Pacheco, a thoroughly modern yogi tying to help us cultivate deep roots.

The Small Press Book Club will be reading Dear Thief by Samantha Harvey on Thursday, March 19th at 7pm. The Club picked it based partly on this passage from this glowing review: "..Dear Thief is a beautiful, tentative success, a novel with no interest in conformity. Harvey’s book is propelled not by the usual structures of novel writing but by the quality of its author’s mind, by the luminousness of her prose, and by an ardent innocence of speculation that is rare in contemporary fiction..."  For more about this pick and the Small Press Book Club, contact lydia@brooklinebooksmith.com.
