AuthorsLive welcomes novelist Karen Dukess who will read from and discuss her debut novel The Last Book Party. The book is a tale of ambition and romance, set in the publishing world of 1980’s New York and the timeless beaches of Cape Cod. It's a coming-of-age story, written with a lyrical sense of place and a profound appreciation for the sustaining power of books. The Last Book Party shows what happens when youth and experience collide and what it takes to find your own voice.
Karen Dukess has been a tour guide in the former Soviet Union, a newspaper reporter
in Florida, a magazine publisher in Russia and, for nearly a decade, a
speechwriter on gender equality for the United Nations Development
Programme. She has blogged on raising boys for The Huffington Post and written book reviews for USA Today. She has a degree in Russian Studies from Brown University and a Master’s in Journalism from Columbia University.
This event is open to all at no charge. Registration, using the
