Author Joan Frank will be at Readers’ Books to celebrate her two latest books, Try to Get Lost: Essays on Travel and Place and Where You’re Going: Four Novellas. There will be a 6:30 reception, followed by a 7:00 reading. Where You’re All Going is a collection of four novellas that delve into the inner lives of characters bewildered by love, grief, and inexplicable affinities. Try to Get Lost is a collection of essays about Ms. Frank’s travels through Europe and the United States and the quest for place that defines us. Try to Get Lost won the River Teeth Nonfiction Prize. Using fiction and nonfiction alike, Ms. Frank applies a candid voice to the human condition with humor and sophistication alike. 

Joan Frank was born to New Yorkers in Phoenix, Arizona. She studied with author Thaisa Frank (no relation) at the University of California in Berkeley, CA, and holds an MFA in creative fiction from Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC. She is the author of eight books of literary fiction and two books of collected essays. A MacDowell Colony Fellow and recipient of many honors, Frank also reviews literary fiction and nonfiction.
