Booksmith is pleased to present Anne Gisleson as she introduces her latest work, The Futilitariansm in conversation with author Dave Eggers (The Circle). The event is free. RSVP on Facebook.
The Futilitarians is the recollection of twelve months, twelve books, and twelve chapters of Anne’s life where she learned to grieve and heal from several family deaths as well as the impact of Hurricane Katrina on her hometown of New Orleans—all through her existential crisis book club.
A witty, moving, and insightful memoir about looking for answers amid the pain of loss and the dreaded process of getting older—a book that New York Times bestselling author Jami Attenberg calls her “favorite memoir of the year” and sums up perfectly as “boozy, brilliant, beautiful, tragic, and deeply affecting.”
