Paul Auster: Literati Bookstore/Books & Books Miami Virtual Event.:
This acclaimed writer and filmmaker, who rose to prominence with a series of postmodern detective stories collected in 1987 as The New York Trilogy, discusses (via Zoom) his new book, Bloodbath Nation, a searing account of America’s use and abuse of guns, from the Republic’s colonial prehistory to armed conflict against native populations, the forced enslavement of millions, and the mass shootings that dominate the current news cycle. Auster is joined by photographer Spencer Ostrander, whose powerful black & white images of abandoned sites of mass shootings punctuate the book. 8 p.m., for URL see literatibookstore.com/event/2023-01.
