Reading & Book Signing
What happens when a casual card player gets a seat in the World Series of Poker as part of a journalistic assignment for Grantland magazine? If it's award-winning novelist and satiric genius Colson Whitehead, what you get is an inside look at the world of poker that is about so much more than just the game. Join us for a reading and signing of his new book to meet Colson himself and experience his take on life's games of chance through self-mockery, social satire and philosophizing first-hand.
Colson Whitehead is the New York Times bestselling author of Zone One, Sag Harbor, The Intuitionist, John Henry Days, Apex Hides the Hurt, and The Colossus of New York, a collection of essays. A recipient of a Whiting Writers' Award and a MacArthur Fellowship, he lives in New York City.
