Janet Fitch, The Revolution of Marina M. Book Talk & Signing
November 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Bookshop Santa Cruz is pleased to present bestselling author Janet Fitch for a book talk and signing of her exciting and dramatic new novel, The Revolution of Marina M. This sweeping novel is about a fiery young woman’s coming-of-age experience, set against the turbulent backdrop of the Russian Revolution.
In Marina Makarova—born to privilege and aching to break from the constraints of her genteel life—readers will recognize Fitch’s master hand. She has created yet another unforgettable female protagonist, complex and flawed, vividly drawn and deeply human. With the Revolution, we see Marina’s young life—and that of her country—upended by the violent forces of history. We follow breathlessly as she joins marches for workers’ rights, falls in love with a radical young poet, and betrays everything she holds dear, before being betrayed in turn.
Janet Fitch’s first novel, White Oleander, has been translated into 24 languages and was made into a feature film. Her most recent novel, Paint It Black, hit bestseller lists across the country and has also been made into a film. She lives in Los Angeles and is currently working on the second part of Marina’s story.
This free event will take place at Bookshop Santa Cruz. Open seating. Seats are generally set up one hour prior to the event’s start time.
