Northshire Bookstore invites you to an evening with Augusten Burroughs, as he presents his new memoir "Lust & Wonder" 

In chronicling the development and demise of the different relationships he's had while living in New York, Augusten Burroughs examines what it means to be in love, what it means to be in lust, and what it means to be figuring it all out. With Augusten's unique and singular observations and his own unabashed way of detailing both the horrific and the humorous, "Lust & Wonder "is an intimate and honest memoir that his legions of fans have been waiting for.

Augusten Burroughs is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Running with Scissors, Dry, Magical Thinking: True Stories, Possible Side Effects, A Wolf at the Table and You Better Not Cry. He is also the author of the novel Sellevision, which is currently in development for film. The film version of Running with Scissors was released in October 2006. In 2005 Entertainment Weekly named him one of "The 25 Funniest People in America."
