Michael Chabon: “Moonglow”

December 15, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm  |  Peace United Church


Bookshop Santa Cruz welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & ClayTelegraph Avenue) for an offsite book talk and signing of Moonglow, his first novel in four years.

Moonglow takes the form of a grandfather’s deathbed confession to his grandson and covers the course of the 20th century. It is a novel of truth and lies, family legends, and existential adventure and the forces that work to destroy us.


“Chabon’s most beautifully realized novel to date …. a masterful and resounding novel of the dark and blazing forces that forged our tumultuous, confounding, and precious world.” Booklist, starred review

“Luminous…. The story builds to core revelations of wartime horror and postwar heartbreak as powerful as they come.” —Library Journal, starred review

“With clean prose and a candid tone, Chabon narrates the questionable deathbed confession of a character referred to only as ‘my grandfather.’ Although the ratio of truth to fiction in this compelling tale may never be known, Moonglow is an engaging, existential adventure through the speculative past of an enigmatic figure.” –Aric, Bookshop staff


This special offsite event, cosponsored by UCSC’s Institute for Humanities Research, will take place at Peace United Church, 900 High Street, Santa Cruz.

TICKET PACKAGES: Ticket packages are $32.53, and include one copy of Moonglow and two tickets to the event. Purchase tickets below (or at Bookshop), while supplies last.
