Random House Reader’s Circle Live!
with Curtis Sittenfeld

Random House Book Club Event Featuring Curtis Sittenfeld's ELIGIBLE

July 18, 2017 in New York, NY

Join Random House Reader’s Circle Live! for the opportunity to meet with other book lovers to discuss Curtis Sittenfeld’s New York Times bestselling novel, ELIGIBLE, a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The event will be held at our flagship office in New York City on Tuesday, July 18 from 6:00PM – 8:00PM.

Like every great book club gathering, wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served as guests break out into small groups for discussions led by Random House staff. After the conversation, Curtis will be in conversation with Refinery29’s Books and Senior Features Writer Elizabeth Kiefer to share her thoughts about the novel, her writing process, and bringing some of literature’s most beloved characters into the 21st century. Sittenfeld is the author of New York Times bestsellers Prep and American Wife.

The $35 ticket price includes a trade paperback copy of ELIGIBLE. The book will be delivered to your door prior to the event.

The Random House Reader’s Circle Live! series—held at the publisher’s flagship office in Manhattan—is a chance for readers to come together to discuss a novel provided by Random House. These lively literary gatherings offer guests exclusive access to a deeper conversation with fellow readers, as well as the chance to meet the author for more insight into their stories.

About Our Pick:

“If there exists a more perfect pairing than Curtis Sittenfeld and Jane Austen, we dare you to find it…Sittenfeld makes an already irresistible story even more beguiling and charming.” —ELLE

From the “wickedly entertaining” Curtis Sittenfeld, New York Times bestselling author of Prep and American Wife, comes a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Equal parts homage to Jane Austen and bold literary experiment, Eligible is a brilliant, playful, and delicious saga for the twenty-first century.
