About this event:
Join us as Dennis Lehane discusses and signs copies of his new book titled Live by Night.
Dennis Lehane is back with an epic, unflinching tale of the making and unmaking of a gangster in the Prohibition Era of the Roaring Twenties. Meticulously researched and artfully told, Live by Night is the riveting story of one man’s rise from Boston petty thief to the Gulf Coast’s most successful rum runner, and it proves again that the accolades New York Times bestseller Lehane consistently receives are well deserved.
Lehane is the best-selling author of nine novels. From Gone, Baby, Gone to Mystic River to Shutter Island to The Given Day, the phenomenal Dennis Lehane has proven himself to be one of the most versatile and exciting novelists working in America today—whether he’s breaking new ground with uniquely inventive psychological suspense, redefining the detective story, or bringing a bygone era to life with sweeping and masterful historical fiction. Lehane has also written Coronado, a collection of short stories and a play.
Lehane will appear in the Winter Garden, located on the 9th floor. Seating is limited and available first come, first served. Reservations are not required. Books are available for purchase at this event and Mr. Lehane will autograph books at the conclusion of the program.
