Maryville Talks Books: Elizabeth Strout - The Burgess Boys

Elizabeth Strout

Venue: Maryville University Library 

Elizabeth Strout "animates the ordinary with astonishing force," wrote The New Yorker on the publication of her Pulitzer Prize-winning Olive Kitteridge. Tender, tough-minded, loving, and deeply illuminating about the ties that bind us to family and home, The Burgess Boys follows brothers Jim and Bob Burgess, who escaped from their Maine hometown as soon as they possibly could after their father's death... until Susan--the Burgess sibling who stayed behind--urgently calls them home to help with her troubled teenage son. Maryville Talks Books is sponsored by Left Bank Books, Maryville University, St. Louis Public Radio, and HEC-TV.
