Join renowned literary agent Bill Clegg for a celebration of his Man Booker-nominated debut novel, Did You Ever Have A Family. An intricately woven study of the strange community that springs from the aftermath of an unthinkable tragedy, Did You Ever Have a Family, is “a great book of kindness—every restrained, exquisite sentence comes loaded for bear" (Darin Strauss). Joining him in conversation will be Paul Yoon, author of Once the Shore, which won the Asian American Literary Award for Fiction and a 5 Under 35 Award from the National Book Foundation, and Snow Hunters.
Bill Clegg is a literary agent in New York and the author of the bestselling memoirs Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man and Ninety Days. He has written for The New York Times, Lapham’s Quarterly, New York magazine, The Guardian, and Harper’s Bazaar.
