Upcoming Events At BookShop West Portal

Jane Smiley will read and discuss her novel, Ten Days in the Hills
Tuesday, April 22nd at 7:00 PM

More than once, critics have wondered if Jane Smiley has abandoned the world of serious literature. They wondered with Moo, Horse Heaven (2000), and again with Ten Days In The Hills. Come find out if Smiley's satirical style still floats in this latest of her works.

Michael Chabon will read and discuss his novel, The Yiddish Policemen's Union
Tuesday, May 20th at 7:00 PM

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay pens an homage to the stylish menace of 1940s noir, in a novel that imagines if Alaska, not Israel, had become the homeland for the Jews after World War II.
