Richard Russo: That Old Cape Magic
All Kansas City Public Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26, and will remain closed all day Thursday, November 27, for Thanksgiving.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo discusses his new novel about marriage and all of the other ties that bind, from parents and in-laws to children and the promises of youth.
That Old Cape Magic is a novel of deep introspection and every family feeling imaginable, with a middle-aged man confronting his parents and their failed marriage, his own troubled one, his daughter’s new life, and, finally, what it was he thought he wanted and what in fact he has.
Russo won the Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for his book Empire Falls.
The event is presented by Rainy Day Books. The book will be available for sale.
