Writers LIVE: Jacob Bacharach @ CLP - Main
FREE reading at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh - Main, in Oakland Thursday, June 5, 2014 at 6:00 PM
Pittsburgh resident Jacob Bacharach appears at Writers LIVE with his debut novel, The Bend of the World, a coming-of-age story reminiscent of Chabon's Mysteries of Pittsburgh. Set in modern day Pittsburgh, 29-year-old Peter Morrison, along with his addict, conspiracy theorizing best friend Johnny, get pulled into a world that grows odder by the day that includes UFOs sightings, evil corporations, time-altering drugs, and underground conspiracies. Author Dan Chaon called The Bend of the World "An audacious, hilarious, and aptly surreal satire of the state of America in this new, uncanny century." You won't want to miss this wise-cracking debut.
A book signing follows the program with copies of The Bend of the World available from Mystery Lovers Bookshop.
Jacob Bacharach is an arts administrator at the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and manager of the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts. He has a BA in English and creative writing from Oberlin College. He lives in Pittsburgh.
