Rumaan Alam reads from his new book Rich and Pretty: A Novel (HarperCollins 2016) in conversation with novelist Mira Jacob. Mention AAWW when you check out at this special B&N book fair event and we’ll receive 10% of your purchase as a donation!

Rumaan’s Rich and Pretty is an irresistible debut set in contemporary New York that focuses on how the relationship between two best friends (Sarah and Lauren) changes when they are no longer coming of age but learning how to live adult lives. He’ll be interviewed by Mira Jacob, the author of The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing (Random House 2014), named one of 2014’s best books by the Boston Globe, Kirkus Reviews, and The Millions. Sleepwalker is—in the words of Jim Shepard—“a time-traveling multigenerational saga that still remains intimate in its feel and central focus.”
