Celeste Ng

Monday, May 20, 7:30 p.m.

Celeste Ng’s novel Little Fires Everywhere is a riveting story that traces the fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother-daughter pair who upend their lives in the idyllic suburban bubble of Shaker Heights, Ohio, where all aspects of life are planned. Presenting two contrasting models of motherhood in Elena Richardson and Mia Warren, Ng sets up the conflict that will drive them apart. Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood in contemporary America—and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster. This acclaimed novel was awarded the Goodreads Choice Award for Best Fiction and named Amazon’s Best Novel of 2017. Reese Witherspoon selected it for her book club and will adapt it into a limited series on Hulu.
