Revered literary master and New York Times bestselling author Joyce Carol Oates is one of America’s most prolific and illuminating writers. Her latest novel, The Sacrifice, explores the simmering racial tensions just under the surface of a small New Jersey town after a young girl allegedly suffers an act of racial violence. Coming at a particularly incendiary time in this country’s ongoing racial conversation, Oates again proves that her challenging and fearless prose is a constant reflection of our own social fears and endearing moral dilemmas. This week, Joyce Carol Oates reads from and discusses The Sacrifice when she appears on Saturday, Jan. 31, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 1pm. 415.927.0960.
