Jess Walter: The Cold Millions

Don’t miss this special opportunity to hear award-winning author Jess Walter discuss his new novel, The Cold Millions. Described as the most anticipated book of the season, The Cold Millions is "an intimate story of brotherhood, love, sacrifice, and betrayal set against the panoramic backdrop of an early twentieth-century America that eerily echoes our own time (Boston Globe).”

Jess Walter’s novel Beautiful Ruins was a #1 New York Times bestseller and spent more than a year on the bestseller list. He is the author of six novels, a book of short stories and one nonfiction book. Walter won the Edgar Allan Poe Award, and was a finalist for the former National Book Award. His work has been translated into 32 languages, and his fiction has been selected three times for Best American Short Stories as well as the Pushcart Prize and Best American Nonrequired Reading.
