Event Details

The inaugural Unbound Book Club will discuss the astonishing debut novel of this year’s keynote speaker, George Saunders. Lincoln in the Bardo was published in 2017 to universal acclaim. In addition to winning the Man Booker Prize, it was also a New York Times #1 bestseller. Come and discuss the book after hours at the shop on Wednesday, Feb. 20. This event is open to everyone and is completely free.  Please note that you don’t have to have read the novel to attend, but there may very well be spoilers!

February 1862. The Civil War is less than one year old. The fighting has begun in earnest, and the nation has begun to realize it is in for a long, bloody struggle. Meanwhile, President Lincoln’s beloved eleven-year-old son, Willie, lies upstairs in the White House, gravely ill. In a matter of days, despite predictions of a recovery, Willie dies and is laid to rest in a Georgetown cemetery. “My poor boy, he was too good for this earth,” the president says at the time. “God has called him home.” Newspapers report that a grief-stricken Lincoln returns, alone, to the crypt several times to hold his boy’s body.

From that seed of historical truth, George Saunders spins an unforgettable story of familial love and loss that breaks free of its realistic, historical framework into a supernatural realm both hilarious and terrifying. Willie Lincoln finds himself in a strange purgatory where ghosts mingle, gripe, commiserate, quarrel and enact bizarre acts of penance. Within this transitional state—called, in the Tibetan tradition, the bardo—a monumental struggle erupts over young Willie’s soul.

Lincoln in the Bardo is an astonishing feat of imagination and a bold step forward from one of the most important and influential writers of his generation. Formally daring, generous in spirit, deeply concerned with matters of the heart, it is a testament to fiction’s ability to speak honestly and powerfully to the things that really matter to us. Saunders has invented a thrilling new form that deploys a kaleidoscopic, theatrical panorama of voices to ask a timeless  profound question: How do we live and love when we know that everything we love must end?

As the Northern Lights hover in the star-filled sky above the remote town of Almost, Maine, residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. “ ‘Almost, Maine’ is a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love, with a touch of good-natured magic realism … witty, romantic, unsentimental. A beautifully structured play, with nifty surprise endings (most but not all of them happy).” — The New York Times.
