Jessica Stilling & Beverly Gologorsky will both be reading from their new novels.
Peter Pan meets The Lovely Bones in Jessica Stilling’s beautifully rendered and emotionally devastating debut novel about where children go when they die. Betwixt and Between follows three intertwining narratives: that of Preston Tumbler, a ten-year-old boy who is poisoned by a neighbor and wakes up in Neverland, where he finds himself—along with a group of other deceased children—under the watchful eye of Peter Pan; Preston’s mother, Claire, in the real world, as she deals with the loss of her son; and a family in Victorian London as they wait for their little girl to awake from a coma, a family whose neighbor happens to be Peter Pan author JM Barrie.
Jessica Stilling received her MFA from City College and her BA from The New School.

Beverly Gologorsky, author of Stop Here, and Pulitzer-winning writer Elizabeth Strout, author of The Burgess Boys, read and discuss their latest works of fiction at The Strand Bookstore on Wednesday, December 4th at 7:00pm.
Stop Here is Beverly Gologorsky’s long-awaited second novel which, like her acclaimed first novel, The Things We Do to Make it Home, explores the lives of working-class women (struggling to make ends meet at a roadside diner in Long Island) through the lens of war, destruction, loss, and economic struggle. In simple and striking prose, Gologorsky weaves each woman’s story together to form a complete picture of the tragedies and triumphs of four ordinary friends and coworkers against the backdrop of a nation at war.
Beverly Gologorsky is the author of the acclaimed novel The Things We Do To Make It Home named a Notable Book by the New York Times, Best Fiction by Los Angeles Times, and a finalist for the Barnes and Noble Discover Great Writers Award.Her work has appeared in anthologies and magazines, including the New York Times, Newsweek, The Nation, and the LA Times.
