Join us for Club Book with Lily King on Tuesday, April 4, 2017. Award-winning novelist Lily King is the author of Euphoria, one of 2014’s best reviewed books. King’s popular page-turner is inspired by and loosely based around the New Guinea fieldwork of famed cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead. The New York Times Book Review singled out Euphoria for a coveted spot on its annual “10 Best Books” list, praising King’s work as a “meticulously researched homage to Mead’s restless mind — and a considered portrait of Western anthropology in its primitivist heyday.” The book garnered the author a host of other honors, as well, including the first-ever Kirkus Prize for Fiction. Lily King has also published three additional novels, including The Pleasing Hour, a riveting debut honored with a Barnes & Noble Discover Award, and Father of the Rain, winner of the New England Book Award for Fiction.
