If Jonathan Franzen feels even an ounce of pressure from being hailed as the “great American novelist,” he’s not showing it. The author of the bestselling novels The Corrections and Freedom returns this year with his newest epic, Purity, that once again examines American life. With the book’s release upon us, Franzen appears twice in the North Bay to read and talk about his new book, first in conversation with writer Tom Barbash on Tuesday, Sept. 1, at Book Passage (51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera; 7pm; 415.927.0960), Franzen then speaks with author and reviewer Jane Ciabatarri on Wednesday, Sept. 2, as the Santa Rosa High School auditorium (1235 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa; 7pm).
