Arts & Letters Live: Steven Rowley

June 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$20 – $25


In conversation with Bradley Pritchett, Chief Experience Officer at the DMA 

Steven Rowley, winner of the Thurber Prize for American Humor, returns with The Guncle Abroad, a charming sequel to his heartwarming bestseller The Guncle.

It has been five years since Patrick O’Hara spent the summer caring for his young niece and nephew after their mother’s passing. When his brother announces he’s getting remarried in Italy, the now moody young teens are not thrilled. As they travel through Europe on their way to the wedding, Patrick tries his best to help them understand love, much as he once helped them comprehend grief. But when they arrive in Italy, Patrick isoverextended managing a groom with cold feet, a recklessly flirtatious sister, and a growing rivalry with the kids’ charming soon-to-be-launt (lesbian aunt), all culminating in a disastrous rehearsal dinner.

Using his signature blend of humor and heart, Steven Rowley charms with a story about the complicated bonds of family, love, and what it takes to rediscover yourself, even at the ripe age of 50.

Steven Rowley is the New York Times bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus, a Washington Post Notable Book; The Editor, an NPR Best Book of the Year; The Guncle, aGoodreads Choice Awards finalist for Novel of the Year; and The Celebrants,a Todayshow Read with Jenna Book Club pick.

Books will ship to virtual ticket holders after the event date.
