Beloved author and indie bookstore hero Ann Patchett joins us at UNCA’s Lipinsky Auditorium to discuss and sign her new book, This is the Story of a Happy Marriage. A collection of Patchett’s nonfiction including essays and commencement addresses, This is the Story of a Happy Marriage illuminates the pieces that have formed her life all told in her distinctive voice. Publishers Weekly praises her “candid, evolved self-reflection” and, in a starred review, Booklist called her “a commanding and incisive storyteller, whether her tales are true or imagined.” Tickets are $15 and include a coupon for $10 off the cost of the book. Please call the store or visit us online at for more information, to order tickets, and to pre-order books.
