Enjoy an evening with author Pauls Toutonghi on November 20.  Called “whipsmart and hilarious” by internationally-bestselling author Darin Strauss, Pauls Toutonghi quickly commanded the attention of national media from the New York Times to NPR with his debut novel Red Weather. The Chicago Tribune lauded Toutonghi for his “engrossing” and “lyrical” portrait of first-generation Latvian-Americans coming of age; his “wry, cant-free story” earned him comparisons to David Sedaris in the Cleveland Plain Dealer; and Time Out New York called him “unflinching and hilarious.” With the same wit and remarkable intuition about the complexities of familial bonds and the first generation American experience, Toutonghi takes us on another droll and insightful coming-of-age adventure in Evel Knievel Days to explore how we come to reconcile our families and our histories with ourselves.
