A Virtual Evening with Joyce Carol Oates In conversation with Dean Nelson
Event Date: August 25, 2022 8:00 pm
From one of America’s most renowned storytellers—the best-selling author of “Blonde”—comes a novel about love and deceit, and lust and redemption, against a backdrop of shocking murders in the affluent suburbs of Detroit. Suspenseful, brilliantly orchestrated, and engrossing, “Babysitter” is a starkly narrated exploration of the riskiness of pursuing alternate lives, calling into question how far we are willing to go to protect those whom we cherish most. In its scathing indictment of corrupt politics, unexamined racism, and the enabling of sexual predation in America, “Babysitter” is a thrilling work of contemporary fiction.
