Writers’ Workshop graduate and author of The Invisible Bridge Julie Orringer will read from her new novel The Flight Portfolio.  “A historical novel absolutely relevant to our own time, The Flight Portfolio brings to life a hero as complex and engrossing as the agonizing ethical questions he faces. Orringer not only recreates the world of wartime Marseille, but seems to drop the reader there by way of a masterfully fashioned literary trapdoor–and anyone who picks up this spectacular novel risks a swift descent into its vivid and consuming swirl.” —Nell Freudenberger

Julie Orringer is also the author of the award-winning short-story collection How to Breathe Underwater, which was a New York Times Notable Book. She lives in Brooklyn.
