Emily St. John Mandel: Literati Bookstore.
In the first in-person–albeit offsite–Literati book talk in 2 years, this bestselling author of the PEN/Faulkner award-winning Station Eleven joins WUOM Stateside host April Baer to discuss her hotly anticipated new novel Sea of Tranquility, a sweeping, metaphysical adventure whose focus jumps timelines between a young immigrant in 1912 western Canada, a famous writer on a world tour 200 years later, and a detective on a 23rd-century lunar colony. 7 p.m., Rackham Auditorium. Mask & proof of vaccination required. Tickets $29 (includes a signed copy of the book) in advance at literatibookstore.com/event/2022-04 and (if available) at the door. 585-5567.
