VIBC: Tara Isabella Burton: Social Creature
Monday September 24: 7:30PM – 8:30PM
For readers of Gillian Flynn and Donna Tartt, a dark, propulsive and addictive debut thriller, splashed with all the glitz and glitter of New York City.
They go through both bottles of champagne right there on the High Line, with nothing but the stars over them... They drink and Lavinia tells Louise about all the places they will go together, when they finish their stories, when they are both great writers-to Paris and to Rome and to Trieste...
Lavinia will never go. She is going to die soon.
Louise has nothing. Lavinia has everything. After a chance encounter, the two spiral into an intimate, intense, and possibly toxic friendship. A Talented Mr. Ripley for the digital age, this seductive story takes a classic tale of obsession and makes it irresistibly new.
Join us for another edition of Vulture Insiders Book Club with Boris Kachka and author Tara Isabella Burton, theologian turned thriller writer.
Admission Options: This event is free to attend. Copies of Social Creature will be available for purchase at the event. The event will be located in the Strand's 2nd floor Art Department at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.
