NYPL & WNYC’s Get Lit March Book Club: Rebecca Makkai (In Person & Virtual)
March 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join WNYC’s Alison Stewart and Rebecca Makkai for a live conversation about the book I Have Some Questions for You.
The New York Public Library and WNYC—two indispensable New York institutions—are partnering to host a book club that brings New Yorkers together and fosters community.
The March title is I Have Some Questions for You by Rebecca Makkai. Timely, hypnotic, and populated with a cast of unforgettable characters, I Have Some Questions for You is at once a compulsive page-turner and a literary triumph.
Throughout the month, All of It host Alison Stewart and the Library will accompany readers, providing touchpoints on-air and on social media at @allofitwnyc and @nypl. Borrow the book (and more than 300,000 others) for free through the Library’s e-reader app SimplyE, available for iOS and Android devices.
Join Stewart, the author, and readers everywhere for a live conversation, in-person or online, on Tuesday, March 28 at 6 PM.
