An Evening with National Book Award Winner, Alice McDermott

IN-DC is delighted to present a special evening with Alice McDermott, winner of the American Book Award and U.S. National Book Award for Fiction.

Ms. McDermott will discuss and read from her new book The Ninth Hour which tells the story of a widow, her daughter and their link with the nuns who serve their Irish-American community in Brooklyn.  Books will be available for sale and the author will sign after the event.

The Ninth Hour was described as “a marvelous literary feat …. McDermott lays bare the reasons why those “small lives” matter …..She’s written another one of those ‘parochial' novels of hers whose reach is universal.” - Maureen Corrigan, The Wall Street Journal.
