    Acclaimed 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."

    Janet Fitch's first novel, White Oleander, a #1 bestseller and Oprah's Book Club selection, has been translated into 24 languages and was made into a feature film. Her second novel, Paint It Black, hit bestseller lists across the country and has also been made into a film. She lives in Los Angeles.
