    11/08/2017 - 7:30pm

    WORD invites you to spend an evening celebrating Heather, the Totality, the explosive debut novel from the creator of the award-winning television sensation Mad Men.  Weiner’s new novel examines power, privilege, and family and will provide fascinating fodder for the discussion between Weiner and Bailey Prize-winning novelist A.M. Homes.

    Heather, the Totality is a tour de force of control, tone and razor-slash insight. In its clear-eyed anatomist’s gaze and its remarkable combination of empathy and pitilessness. I hear echoes of Flaubert and Richard Yates, with a deeply twisted twist of Muriel Spark at her darkest. I could not put it down.” -Michael Chabon

    “Short and rapier-sharp, Matthew Weiner’s Heather, the Totality compels and unnerves in equal measure. Like the great Patricia Highsmith, Weiner renders the disturbing not just plausible but exquisitely, agonizingly inevitable. A tour de force.” - Claire Messud

    The literary genius of A.M. Homes and the dynamic character genius of Matthew Weiner are sure to provide an evening of conversation you don’t want to miss.  

    Tickets are $32 and include admission and a copy of Heather, The Totality. Wine and freshments to be served.
