    Love Like That is a joyfully subversive and moving debut collection of stories about brilliant, broken women that are just the right amount wrong.

  • A Virtual Book Discussion

    Tuesday, March 16 at 7:00 pm

    Join us for an evening with Mark Kurlansky to celebrate the release of his new book, The Unreasonable Virtue of Fly Fishing.

The targets—salmon, trout, and char—are highly intelligent, wily, strong, and athletic animals. The allure, Kurlansky finds, is that fly fishing makes catching a fish as difficult as possible. There is an art, too, in the crafting of flies, while the cast as well is a...
