Location: Horchow Auditorium
From Pulitzer Prize–winning author Elizabeth Strout comes Lucy by the Sea, a poignant novel that follows the indomitable heroine of My Name Is Lucy Barton through the early days of the pandemic. As a panicked world goes into lockdown, Lucy is uprooted from her life in Manhattan and bundled away to a small town in Maine by her ex-husband, William. At the heart of this story are the deep human connections that unite us—the pain of a beloved daughter’s suffering, the emptiness that comes from the death of a loved one, the promise of a new friendship, and the comfort of an old, enduring love.
Strout is the New York Times bestselling author of numerous books, including Olive Kitteridge, winner of the Pulitzer Prize; Oh William!, named one of the best books of the year by NPR and the New York Times Book Review; My Name Is Lucy Barton, longlisted for the Man Booker Prize; and The Burgess Boys.
