We are thrilled to announce that novelist Richard Powers will visit Point Reyes on Sunday, October 20, to discuss his 2019 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Overstory. Richard will be joined in conversation with fellow Pulitzer Prize winner, poet Forrest Gander. 

The Overstory has won near universal acclaim, being called "a gigantic fable of genuine truths" by Barbara Kingsolver in the NY Times; "a Great American Eco-Novel" by the Financial Times; and "a kind of breakthrough in the ways we think about and understand the world around us, at a moment when that is desperately needed" in the words of Bill McKibben. Short-listed for the Man Booker Prize, called a best book of the year by the Washington Post, Newsweek, Kirkus Reviews, and more, The Overstory is a masterpiece of 21st century literature.

Tickets go on sale on September 5.
