The NYS Writers Institute and the Historic Albany Foundation are back with a one-night only online book club event, reading The Crazy Ladies of Pearl Street by Trevanian.
Legendary writer Trevanian brings readers his most personal novel yet: a funny, deeply felt, often touching coming-of-age novel set in 1930s America.
Six-year-old Jean-Luc LaPointe, his little sister, and his spirited but vulnerable young mother have been abandoned—again—by his father, a charming con artist. With no money and nowhere else to go, the LaPointes create a fragile nest in a tenement building at 238 North Pearl Street in Albany, New York."
Paul Grondahl, Executive Director of the NYS Writers Institute, will be our moderator. A walking tour will accompany the book club in April.
