Barrett Bookstore and the DCA Present Elizabeth Strout

Barrett Bookstore and the Darien Community Association are thrilled to announce a live, in-person event on Tuesday, October 26, at 7:00pm at the DCA with beloved, Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Elizabeth Strout to celebrate the release of her new novel, Oh William!

The evening will include a conversation with Elizabeth and time for Q and A from the audience. Signed copies of Oh William! will be included in the ticket price and additional copies will be available at the event.

In her latest novel (release date: October 19, 2021), Elizabeth Strout explores the mysteries of marriage and the secrets we keep, as a former couple reckons with where they’ve come from—and what they’ve left behind.

Elizabeth Strout is one of my very favorite writers, so the fact that Oh William! may well be my favorite of her books is a mathematical equation for joy. The depth, complexity, and love contained in these pages is a miraculous achievement.

—Ann Patchett, author of The Dutch House
