REBECCA MAKKAI

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13; 7 PM @ The Greene

REBECCA MAKKAI will introduce the softcover edition of her popular novel, The Borrower. It centers around a 26-year-old librarian, Lucy, and one of her favorite patrons, Ian, a ten-year-old boy who often takes refuge from his overbearing parents at the library. When his parents sign him up for “anti-gay” classes, Ian decides to run away. Lucy allows herself to be hijacked by him and they go on a wild cross-country adventure. The farther they get, the more Lucy must decide whether she’s doing Ian more harm than good by taking him away from his family. Ultimately, she devises an ingenious (and literary) plan. The book has allusions to children’s literature classics sprinkled throughout. It is basically a novel about acceptance and a serious love of reading. PENGUIN
