Authors are coming out for what will be a very literary week at Central Library’s Dweck Center. First up is Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon on Thursday, October 8, at 7 PM. He’ll be reading from his nonfiction work Manhood for Amateurs: The Pleasures and Regrets of a Husband, Father, and Son. His previous books include The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay (winner of the Pulitzer Prize), The Yiddish Policemen's Union and Wonder Boys. This will be Chabon’s only stop in the city, so this is definitely not an event to be missed.  

Then on Saturday, October 10, at 4 PM, Elizabeth Nunez will read from her latest novel, Anna In-Between. This award-winning author is also the provost at Brooklyn’s own Medgar Evers College. 

There will be plenty of other cultural events at the Dweck Center this month, including more author talks. Visit our website to see what’s happening.
