Bestselling Author Zadie Smith at Revolution Hall
October 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$37
Powell’s Books presents Zadie Smith, bestselling author of “White Teeth” and “Swing Time,” at Portland’s Revolution Hall, 1300 S.E. Stark St., at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 15.
Zadie Smith has established herself as one of the most critically respected and popular writers of her generation. Theaward-winning author of five novels and two essay collections, Smith was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 2002, and was listed as one of Granta’s 20 Best Young British Novelists in 2003 and again in 2013.
In her first short story collection, “Grand Union,” Smith interweaves 11 new and unpublished stories with some of her best-loved pieces from “The New Yorker” and elsewhere. Moving across genres and perspectives, from the historic to the vividly current to the slyly dystopian, “Grand Union” is a sharp and prescient collection about time and place, identity and rebirth, the persistent legacies that haunt our present selves and the uncanny futures that rush up to meet us.
Tickets are available at revolutionhall.com or by calling Ticketfly at 877-435-9849. The ticket price, $37, includes a copy of Smith’s “Grand Union.”
