Daphne Beal & Matthew Quick @ The Merc (10/1)


The Beatrice.com reading series at the Mercantile Library Center for Fiction continues Wednesday, October 1, with two more debut novelists—and though their stories are very different (one’s set in Nepal and Bombay, the other during football season in Philadelphia), they share a common theme in their explorations of how difficult it can be to really know the people closest to you.

Daphne Beal (In the Land of No Right Angles) was on the editorial staff of the New Yorker and educated at Brown and NYU. Matthew Quick (The Silver Linings Playbook) earned his creative writing MFA through Goddard College.

This should be a fun evening, and possibly the last Beatrice @ The Merc reading that will be held at the library’s original midtown location (17 E 47th St.), so I hope you’ll come join us at 7 p.m. Wine and light refreshments will be served after the reading, and books will be available for you to buy and Daphne and Matthew to sign.
