Join us for an evening with National Book Award Finalist Joshua Ferris as he reads from his new novel, To Rise Again at a Decent Hour. A big, laugh-out-loud story about the absurdities of the modern world and the eternal questions of life, love and truth, this story of a man made of contradictions uses Red Sox fandom and dentistry to explore issues of identity, religion and reality. Ferris's first novel, Then We Came to the End, won the Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award.
