Meet A Rising Star

When author Nathan Hill was recently compared to John Irving, Irving compared him to Dickens. This guy and his debut novel are something else, and he’s coming to the Library Auditorium on Monday, Oct 24, from 7:30–9 PM!

Hill’s debut novel weaves a multi-generational tale involving political unrest, family betrayal, and redemption. Booklist hails The Nix as “engrossing, skewering, and preternaturally timely tale beside the novels of Tom Wolfe, John Irving, Donna Tartt, and Michael Chabon. . . . Hill takes aim at hypocrisy, greed, misogyny, addiction, and vengeance with edgy humor and deep empathy in a whiplashing mix of literary artistry and compulsive readability.”

The Raven will be selling books, so you can grab one for Nathan to sign.
