Looking for something to do on Thursday night (March 26)? Why not tune into an author talk with Emily St. John Mandel where she will be discussing her new book, The Glass Elevator, and answering online audience questions. This event is hosted by the Free Library of Philadelphia.

In conversation with Beth Kephart, the award-winning author of more than twenty-five books, including Going Over, Handling the Truth: On the Writing of Memoir, and most recently The Great Upending.
A finalist for the National Book Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award, Emily St. John Mandel’s bestselling Station 11 vacillates in time between the world that we know and the dystopic travails of a Shakespearean acting troupe in the years following a global plague. Her other novels include Last Night in Montreal, The Lola Quartet, and The Singer’s Gun, winner of the 2014 Prix Mystère de la Critique in France. She is a staff writer for art and culture magazine The Millions. In The Glass Hotel, Mandel tells a tale of a gargantuan Ponzi scheme, cryptic threats, and the clandestine landscapes that exist just below the veneer of ordinary life.
