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.
