The Dream Life of Astronauts: Patrick Ryan in Conversation with Hannah Tinti

Join Patrick Ryan to celebrate The Dream Life of Astronauts, his new collection of short stories depicting the lives of ordinary people under the extraordinary skies of Cape Canaveral, Florida, home of NASA’s space program. Patrick Ryan is the author of three novels and one previous collection of short stories, and is the recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts in Fiction and the Smart Family Foundation Award for Fiction. With this new collection, says Anne Beattie, “Patrick Ryan has aimed for the stars and made it.” He will be joined by Hannah Tinti, author of  New York Times Notable Book of the Year The Good Thief, and The Twelve Bullets of Samuel Hawley, forthcoming from Dial Press.
