Collected Works Bookstore & Coffeehouse welcomes bestselling and prize-winning author Joyce Carol Oates, in conversation with author David Morrell, Wednesday, August 4, 6 p.m. Joyce Carol Oates is a recipient of the National Medal of Humanities, the National Book Critics Circle Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award, the National Book Award, and the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction and has been several times nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. She will be discussing her latest work: Breathe – A Novel Of Love And Loss.

Amid a starkly beautiful but uncanny landscape in New Mexico, a married couple from Cambridge, MA takes residency at a distinguished academic institute. When the husband is stricken with a mysterious illness, misdiagnosed at first, their lives are uprooted and husband and wife each embarks upon a nightmare journey. Part intimately detailed love story, part horror story rooted in real life, BREATHE is an exploration of hauntedness rooted in the domesticity of marital love, as well as our determination both to be faithful to the beloved and to survive the trauma of loss.

The store will be taking COVID precautions, masks will be required for the duration of the program and seating will be spaced accordingly.
