Tracy Kidder

As expected we had a sell out crowd for Tracy Kidder on Thursday night. Of particular interest was his decision to address his writing "style", as he is so often asked about it. As his readers know, he doesn't write dry tedious treatises on topics of interest, but compelling, inspiring and enthralling narratives about real people involved in diverse yet universally human pursuits. He has brought Partners in Health and the work they do to the forefront and let's hope Strength in What Remains will do the same for Village Health Works.

For further details about the evening you can take a look at this blog posted by Kevin Koczwara. http://feeldabeat.wordpress.com/2009/10/09/tracy-kidder-talks-new-book-and-issues-at-porter-square/

We have signed copies of Kidder's latest on hand but they are going fast. Speaking of which, we have signed first editions of Lorrie Moore's A Gate at the Stairs available now. As of October 26 we will have signed first editions of Margaret Atwood's The Year of the Flood. You can call and reserve a copy or just come in the store.
