An Evening with Tom Perrotta

Join us for an unforgettable evening with Tom Perrotta, the bestselling author of eight works of fiction, including Election and Little Children, both of which were made into critically acclaimed movies, and The Leftovers, which was adapted into an HBO series. 


“Tom Perrotta is a truth-telling, unshowy chronicler of modern-day America."—New York Times Book Review

"Tom Perrotta writes with a satirist's ear and the heart of a romantic." —Jennifer Egan

"Perrotta is that rare combination: a satirist with heart…Those who haven't curled up on the couch with this writer's books are missing a very great pleasure."—Seattle Times

“He's the Steinbeck of suburbia.” —Time 

"Our Balzac of the burbs." —Chicago Sun Times

"An American Chekov." —New York Times Book Review

"...Prose so affable that the pages keep turning without hesitation. With Perrotta at the controls, you buy the set-up and sit back as he takes off.” —Chicago Sun Times

"Tom Perrotta has to be considered one of our true genius satirists."—Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River

"Perrotta [is] funny and deeply touching... A writer who's here for the long haul." —Tobias Wolff
