George Saunders
Author of “Liberation Day”

Booker Prize winner for “Lincoln in the Bardo,” George Saunders presents a collection of short stories that grapple with the complexities of our increasingly troubled world, his first since the New York Times bestseller “Tenth of December.” Renowned as the “best short-story writer in English” (Time), Saunders’s stories in “Liberation Day” explore ideas of power, ethics, and justice and cut to the very heart of what it means to live in community with our fellow humans.

Tickets go on sale September 9 at 9:00 a.m. and can be purchased through Eventbrite. Seating will be offered on a first come, first served basis. 

INDIVIDUAL TICKET $35 (Admits ONE and includes one pre-signed copy of “Liberation Day”) 

OR

PACKAGE TICKET $40 (Admits TWO and includes one pre-signed copy of “Liberation Day”) 

Due to time constraints, there will not be a book signing line following the presentation.

A limited number of pre-sale tickets go on sale September 7 at 9:00 a.m. for Friends of the Foundation. Friends members will receive an email with purchasing instructions. Join the Friends at foundation.slcl.org.
