Bestselling author Janet Fitch will read from her new novel, The Revolution of Marina M. Of the book, Cynthia Bond (author of Ruby) wrote: "Incandescent. Fitch has expertly drawn the world of Russia in 1916 . . . Poets, artists, profiteers, soldiers, cult leaders, sadists, idealists, blood, sex, hope all piecing together in a new life, a new country. The brilliant Janet Fitch has written yet another powerful, kaleidoscopic novel."
