Last night, Ben Lerner and Ian McEwan took to the stage of the sold-out Fleck Dance Theatre for a reading and discussion with interviewer Carol Off. Both authors brought life to their latest novels by reading a selection of passages, and then fielding questions from Carol and the packed audience.
After the reading and interview, both authors chatted with a large crowd of fans and signed copies of their books.
It was one of the first events of IFOA Weekly’s 41st season, and an excellent taste of what’s to come for upcoming IFOA Weekly events and the Festival, which runs October 23 to November 2. If you weren’t able to see Lerner and McEwan, don’t miss your chance to engage with another literary giant: David Mitchell visits IFOA this Saturday, October 20 for a reading and interview. Grab your tickets here!
