A reading with Robert Isenberg, author of The Green Season

Date: Thursday, February 18th at 7:00 PM
Location: East End Book Exchange

Expat writer Robert Isenberg will read from his new book, The Green Season at East End Book Exchange.

Thursday, February 18th, 7-9pm. Free and open to everyone.

In 2013, Robert Isenberg sold all his belongings, bought a plane ticket, and moved to Costa Rica. There he worked as a staff reporter for The Tico Times, zigzagging across the country in search of stories.

The Green Season is a collection of essays, profiles, and travelogues written during his first year in Central America. The first book from The Tico Times Publishing Group, The Green Season is a love letter to the world’s happiest country: Readers meet national heroes, surf instructors, indigenous crafters, and survivors of the sex trade. Throughout, Isenberg uses his trademark humor and observation to illustrate the country’s complex cultural landscape.

Tracy O'Neill, author of The Hopeful

Date: Thursday, February 25th at 7:00 PM
Location: East End Book Exchange

Tracy O’Neill will be reading at the East End Book Exchange on February 25th. Ms. O’Neill is the author of The Hopeful (Ig Books, 2015), a hyper-smart, hyper-articulate novel of obsession, individuality, and aging, set against the dramatic backdrop of the weird, glittering world of figure skating and the fraught, boxed rooms of a psychiatric hospital. On its considerable strengths, she was named one of the National Book Foundation’s “Five Under 35” (information below). I’d be grateful if you’d publicize the event to your readers. Tracy is herself a former figure skater; she regularly writes about sports for Rolling Stone.
