Costalegre Reading with Courtney Maum In Convo w/ Ryan Chapman

Acclaimed novelist Courtney Maum will read from her new book, Costalegre, with time afterward for signing and conversation. Ryan Chapman, author of Riots I Have Known, will lead and moderate discussion.

About the book:
Sinuous and striking, heartbreaking and strange, Costalegre is heavily inspired by the real-life relationship between the heiress Peggy Guggenheim and her daughter, Pegeen. Acclaimed author Courtney Maum triumphs with this wildly imaginative and curiously touching story of a privileged teenager who has everything a girl could wish for except for a mother who loves her back.
