Warwick Summer Read: The World of Ann Patchett

Ann Patchett

Join librarians Mary Anne Quinn and Jen Linton for a discussion of three books by Ann Patchett—Bel Canto, The Dutch House, and These Precious Days: Essays.


Ann Patchett writes enchanting, multi-layered stories with rich and complex characters. In Bel Canto, terrorists and hostages forge unexpected bonds and become friends and lovers. In The Dutch House, a husband buys a lavish estate and sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves. In These Precious Days: Essays, Ann Patchett reflects on home, family, friendships, and writing in a deeply personal collection of essays.


Pick up copies of one, two, or all three books at the Welcome Desk. Have a good read and come for a breezy summer discussion.


This event is free and open to all.
