Adult Summer Reading Distinguished Speaker Series: Book Critic and Author Maureen Corrigan

Adult Summer Reading Distinguished Speaker Series: Book Critic and Author Maureen Corrigan

Maureen Corrigan is America’s most trusted and beloved book critic. Her distinctive voice is at once incisive and accessible, like a well-read friend who always sends you home with a good book to read.

For more than twenty years Maureen has been the book critic for NPR’s Fresh Air. She is also a columnist for The Washington Post and The Nicky and Jamie Grant Distinguished Professor of the Practice in Literary Criticism at Georgetown University where her courses are very  popular. As a lecturer she’s been described as “brilliant,” “hilarious,” “passionate” and “eloquent.” She is the author of two books of her
own; Leave me Alone I’m Reading and So We Read On: How the Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why it Endures, which was named one of the ten best books of the year by Library Journal.

**There will be a book seller available before the event-please arrive early if you would like to purchase a book to be signed by the author after the event**
