An Evening with Mark Helprin

Join Mark Helprin, author of  #1 New York Times Bestseller Winter’s Tale, for a conversation on his new novel Paris in The Present Tense just out in the US with The Overlook Press.
Paris in The Present Tense follows seventy-four-year-old Jules Lacour—a maître at Paris- Sorbonne, cellist, widower, veteran of the great war in Algeria, and child of the Holocaust—who must find a balance between his strong obligations to the past and the attractions and beauties of life and love in the present. Set in a present-day Paris caught between violent unrest and its well-known glories, Helprin’s latest novel vividly depicts the famed city in its tumultuous present and how it can uniquely shape a life in unexpected ways.
In English. Free and open to the public. No RSVP necessary.
