Amy Bloom- Lucky Us

Skirball Cultural Center

2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90049

8:00am

Join National Book Award finalist and bestselling author Amy Bloom (Away, Come to Me) as she reads from and discusses her highly anticipated new book, Lucky Us.

Her first novel in seven years, Lucky Us explores the journey of half-sisters Iris and Eva as they navigate the pleasures, perils, and hard choices of adult life. Bloom’s wry humor, psychological insight, and stunning prose bring alive the 1940s—in her words, “a big-shouldered, red-lipped, earth-moving time in American history”—through the story of these two remarkable siblings.

A Q&A and book signing follow the program.

“Remarkable…. One waits a long time for a novel of this scope and dimension.”—Michael Cunningham
