A Highly Unlikely Scenario
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and remain closed all day on Thursday, November 26, for Thanksgiving.
Rachel Cantor helps local readers escape the winter blahs with a discussion of her debut novel, A Highly Unlikely Scenario, or a Neetsa Pizza Employee’s Guide to Saving the World. Cantor, whose résumé includes an Italian childhood, French jazz festivals, and Australian food festivals, dishes up an uproarious tale of Leonard, who operates a pizza chain complaint hotline and finds himself inundated with medieval Kabbalists, rare book librarians, and latter-day Baconians. Cantor’s stories have appeared in The Paris Review, One Story, Kenyon Review, Fence, and other publications.
