Event Details

Winner of the 2002 National Book Award for fiction, Julia Glass has a new book, A House Among the Trees, a rich new literary feast for her fans to cozy up with and savor. The house in the title belongs to renowned children’s illustrator and author Mort Lear, who dies after a dramatic fall, unexpectedly bequeathing his home, art and literary affairs to his longtime assistant, Tomasina Daulair, known as Tommy. Meanwhile, museum curator Meredith Galarza feels jilted by Lear, who had led her to believe the museum would inherit his artwork. And British celebrity Nick Greene, who’s been cast to play the illustrator in a biopic, struggles to deal with many unanswered questions.
