Join us for this exciting evening with André Aciman, author of Call Me By Your Name, as he discusses his critically acclaimed novel, particularly in the context of the Oscar-winning movie adaptation!

André will be joined by Spencer Kornhaber, culture critic at The Atlantic, for a moderated discussion on literature in the context of film, crafting a queer love story, and maybe even André’s cameo performance in the film. You won’t want to miss out on this talk!

The discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience, and an exclusive book signing for those who purchase the VIP ticket package! This includes a copy of the book, provided by Politics and Prose Bookstore.

Tickets are on sale now! VIP Packages are limited in number, so make sure you grab yours before they sell out!
