On May 20, a little more than two years after Wendy Wunder came to talk at the South End library about her first book, The Probability of Miracles, the writer will be back to read from her second, The Museum of Intangible Things. In her first novel, Wunder explored the feeling she had facing a certain kind of death by leaving the life she knew growing up in a small town in New Jersey for the unknown territory of college. Her new work again features a New Jersey town, a down-and-out one, but also the characters of Hannah and Zoe, who look for better things by going west in a beat-up old Le Mans, leaving their less-than-spectacular lives and families behind. What they learn from their voyage, and each other, is what keeps the pages turning. The event is free. The South End Library is fully handicapped accessible. Refreshments are served. Books will be available for sale, signing and borrowing.
The final author of the 2013-2014 authors series is the award-winning writer of legal thrillers, William Landay, whose Defending Jacob, was called the best crime-and-courtroom drama by Stephen King.

William Landay, award-winning author of crime fiction including the New York Times bestseller Defending Jacob, The Strangler and Mission Flats.
