Friday, May 28: Catch Martha McPhee at WriterHouse

Friday May 28 at noon

Join novelist Martha McPhee at WriterHouse for a brown-bag lunch literary salon. We will discuss the role of research in fiction, highlighting her foray into the world of mortgage-backed securities for her latest novel Dear Money. In this Pygmalion tale of a novelist turned bond trader, McPhee brings to life the greed and riotous wealth of New York during the heady days of the second gilded age.

MARTHA McPHEE is the author of the novels Dear Money, Bright Angel Time, Gorgeous Lies, and L’America. Her work has been honored with fellowships from the National Endowment of the Arts and The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. In 2002 she was nominated for a National Book Award.

If you’d like to reserve a spot, please call 434.296.1922, or if you find your Friday lunch hour free, just show up! Should be a great time.
