Reading Recommendations From Elizabeth Strout

Last night we had the pleasure of hosting a wonderful conversation with Elizabeth Strout and Amanda Eyre Ward about the writing life, Strout’s latest novel The Burgess Boys, and just how one goes about creating a Pulitzer Prize-winning work such as Strout’s story collection, Olive Kitteridge. Thanks to Liz, Amanda and everyone who came out (and asked some really good questions).

While Strout signed books, we asked for a few reading recommendations. Here’s what this (once again, Pulitzer Prize-winning) author recommends you read:

Selected Stories of William Trevor
Someone 
by Alice McDermott
Dear Life: Stories by Alice Munro
Stoner by John Williams

Signed copies of The Burgess Boys and Olive Kitteridge are now available on our shelves and via bookpeople.com
