Join us for an evening with Paul Grondahl, Suzanne Lance and Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Kennedy.

Lance and Grondahl will discuss their new book "Bootlegger of the Soul: The Literary Legacy of William Kennedy" with its subject.

The award-winning novelist William Kennedy is perhaps best known for his Albany Cycle, a series of novels that put Albany on the world's literary map alongside James Joyce's Dublin, Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Macondo, and William Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County. "Bootlegger of the Soul" offers a fresh and authoritative overview of Kennedy's long literary career and his astonishing trajectory from journalist to struggling novelist to Pulitzer Prize winner. Included here are reviews, interviews, and scholarly essays on Kennedy's work, as well as essays, speeches, a play, and a short story by the author himself, together with more than fifty historical and personal photographs. Lively, readable, and brimming with the infectious wit and lyrical prose that animates Kennedy's novels, Bootlegger of the Soul is a celebration of a writer still working hard at his craft at age ninety.
