Columbia, SC – Following an unexpected surgery and recovery back in fall, Elizabeth Strout has rescheduled her trip to Columbia. Readers and fans have the opportunity to meet the wildly popular novelist and short story writer from 7-9:45 p.m., Friday, March 24 at Richland Library Main.

A mainstay on the NY Times bestseller list and finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award and Man Booker Prize, Strout is taking part of an author discussion, followed by a book signing and reception. The event is free and open to the public.

Her 2009 release, Olive Kitteridge, won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction and was adapted into an Emmy award-winning HBO miniseries. The Chicago Tribune hails, “What truly makes Strout exceptional … is the perfect balance she achieves between the tides of story and depths of feeling.”

Strout’s latest novel, My Name is Lucy Barton, explores the tension and longing inherent in family relationships that can affect every aspect of one’s life.
