Nationally renowned writer Charles Baxter will read and discuss his just-released novel, The Sun Collective, which introduces us to compelling characters who struggle to make sense of a disorienting world and—against the backdrop of the Twin Cities—to form meaningful relationships and communities. Kirkus praises Baxter for the "gurus and charlatans and other responses to hunger, homelessness, destitution, and simpler woes. Skepticism vies with hope, fanaticism with fantasy." U of M English professor and novelist Julie Schumacher will moderate a reading and conversation with Charles Baxter.
