Join award-winning author Karen Joy Fowler in conversation with Mary Volmer about her latest book Booth, an epic novel about the family behind one of the most infamous figures in American history, John Wilkes Booth.  Booth is a startling portrait of a country in the throes of change, a vivid exploration of brother and sisterhood, and a riveting historical novel focused on the very things that bind, and break, a family. 

Booth was long listed for The 2022 Booker Prize and selected as Best Book of the Year by USA Today. Karen Joy Fowler is an award-winning, NY Times best-selling author of four short story collections and six novels including The Jane Austen Book Club, and We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves which was the winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award and shortlisted for The Booker Prize.
