Ann Patchett is the bestselling author of nine novels, four works of nonfiction, and two picture books. She is a recipient of the National Humanities Medal and the PEN/Faulkner Award, among other honors — her 2019 novel The Dutch House was a Pulitzer Prize finalist. Patchett’s new novel, Tom Lake, is the moving story of three adult daughters who retreat to their family’s Michigan cherry farm during the COVID-19 pandemic. As their mother reminisces about her young adulthood as an actor, her daughters reconsider their lives, their relationship with their mother, and their past assumptions. Join one of the most revered novelists of our time for a conversation about family, love, and the lives parents lived before their children were born.
