Ann Patchett Reading on Tuesday

DC-area fans of Ann Patchett, take note: she’ll be reading at Politics & Prose Bookstore on Tuesday. I haven’t read this new novel, but I’m a fan of Truth & Beauty, a fascinating glimpse into the creative process and the challenges of a friendship. Reading details here and below:
