While Garth Stein has been a racecar driver, a teacher, a filmmaker, and a playwright, his book The Art of Racing in the Rain (HarperCollins, 2008) won him national and international acclaim as a novelist. His latest New York Times bestseller, A Sudden Light, has received a lot of attention since its release, and it covers: family secrets, ancient forests, Pacific Northwest history, and a dose of  the supernatural. No, we’re not talking about David Lynch here. With sharp dialogue and masterful scene-setting, Stein’s cinematic influence shines bright, but it’s his empathetic, plot-driven narrative that makes A Sudden Light a wonderful read. A Conversation with Garth Stein and Drew Waller, director of the Michigan Theater, at Nicola’s Books.

7:00pm, April 23, Westgate Shopping Center, 2513 Jackson Ave, Ann Arbor, (734) 662-0600.

The intonation of acoustic guitars, sanguine pedal steel, brushy drums and tender vocalizations will bring you in close, make you sit down cross legged and ready yourself for the understated swoon of endorphins typically triggered by “folk music.” And you lean in closer…, a bit closer still. And those lyrics hit
