Harvard Book Store is thrilled to welcome acclaimed novelist PAUL AUSTER for a discussion of his new memoir, Winter Journal.

Facing his sixty-third winter, Paul Auster sat down to write a history of his body and its sensations—both pleasurable and painful. Thirty years after the publication of The Invention of Solitude, in which he wrote so movingly about fatherhood, Auster gives us a second unconventional memoir in which he writes about his mother's life and death.

Winter Journal is a highly personal meditation on the body, time, and memory, by one of our most elegant writers.
